The bottom 3 entries are just outputting "defaults", so don't worry
about those.

Definitely doesn't look normal.

Re-looking at the spec, the Auxiliary firmware info is actually
optional, not required.  So this is a bug in FreeIPMI.  I will fix this
and get out a beta release for you.

The output being so different than ipmimonitoring is definitely odd.
Could you please run with --debug and get me the output.

the lack of output of sensors 1-3 is ok here, b/c they are OEM sensors
and ipmimonitoring won't know how to interpret Nominal vs. warning vs.
critical for them.  Sensors 4-7 probably do not have interpretation
rules programmed in yet.  I will add them and get a beta release to you.

Thanks,

Al
