You might want to look into using BigSister, in the ports:
/usr/ports/net-mgmt/bigsister

There are also binaries available for windows.

The sensors are configurable, with various alerting options. I use it across both FreeBSD and Windows servers.

I'm trying to figure out the best way to monitor these boxes.  I'm
interested in RAID status more than anything else, but I'd like to
get as many of the sensors working as possible.

What I'm confused about is the difference between IPMI, Open Manage
and DRAC.  I don't quite understand what does what, and how FreeBSD
support is for either of these options.  I tried and failed to get
IMPI working, I tried to setup linux compatibility to get Open Manage
working (which I assume is the osabmcutil RPM) but I couldn't.  And
I'm not sure if any of these is dependent on the DRAC card or if the
DRAC card and these options are mutually exclusive and the DRAC card
just does "some other cool stuff"(tm).

Can anyone share their experiences?
