Node energy measurement using IPMI
thomas-krenn.com: The /dev/ipmi0 device file must exist so that configuration can be carried out. If it does not exist, you can create it as follows:
- under SuSE, Red Hat or CentOS: /etc/init.d/ipmi start (requires the OpenIPMI package. The OpenIPMI-tools package will be required later, as well.)
- under Debian 4: /usr/share/ipmitool/ipmi.init.basic (If the error message, ipmi_kcs_drv not found, appears, you will have to comment the corresponding if-condition out, see also .)
- under Debian 5: modprobe ipmi_devintf; modprobe ipmi_si
The approach described below has been tested on an Intel SR2500 under CentOS 4 using ipmitool version 1.8.7. In principle, the configuration should be configured similarly on other systems with IPMI support.
