No, I'm not familiar with ipmitool.   I just installed it and
the man page will take some time to read.  It looks like it
does everything and then more.

According to the man page, it apparently needs a kernel driver
named OpenIMPI, which it claims is installed in standard
distributions.  I don't find it on my system.   Running
"impitool sdr type Temperature" results in an error message
saying that it could not open /dev/imp0, etc.
