Nagios is a nice system / network monitoring tool.
"The code in a previous article, Extending
Nagios with Plug-ins, started out as a plug-in to check computer internal
temperatures using the output from the lm_sensors package.
Along the way, I generalized it to check any of the supported sensors against
user-supplied warning and critical-alert thresholds. Alerts were issued for
values above the thresholds. Fine for temperatures, but not for voltages where
you want alerts above or below a range. The Nagios Plug-ins
Project has a suggested syntax for ranges. This article describes a module for
handling ranges, adds example code for checking ACPI temperatures on Linux,
and includes skeleton Nagios plug-in code that you can adapt for your own needs." Unix Review > Nagios Plug-ins
