HP Server - Live Diag tool for temp/fan ?

Recently got an alert for our monitoring software:

"Sensor - ACPI-THM0-Temperature  FAILED on SERVER at Main Office for Sensor - ACPI-THM0-Temperature  result core on DIMM reads 40 with a max of 40 with a monitor limit of 9.1300."

I'm digging into this and with SpeedFan I can see the average CPU temp is about 45-50C which is hot, is it not? 30-40s I can understand but its at 45-50 idle. However, I can't see fan speeds and the HP Insight diag seems to only have a Logical drive test..

Any suggestions how to troubleshoot this remotely?

HP provides a number of diagnostics for their ProLiant systems:

1. Lights Out mangement (iLO)
2. HPSUM Hompepage, a web based tool.
3. CLI tools

And these of course for various operating systems.
If you cannot access (1) or (2), then have a look at hpasmcli:

Thanks I'll check out 3. I tried the HPSUM, but like I said in the OP it only gives me a test option for drives

I just looked it up, the command for the fans would be:
hpasmcli -s "show fans;"

Open in new window

But to my knowledge you would have some red lights on the warning panel if you have a faild fan.

Insight Diagnostics does allow you to see the temperatures, it's under the Survey tab - internal conditions. It'll give you the fan speeds too.

Turns out the alert is basically a false positive
