We have some new blades, and last night we got a bunch of messages about
CPU temp exceeding threshold, throttling CPU. Running ipmitool sel shows
nothing. ipmitool sdr list shows me current values, nothing special.

First question: why would high temps not show up in the SEL?
Second: among the things I see list are
10-VR P1         | 56 degrees C      | ok
11-VR P2         | 46 degrees C      | ok
Does anyone know what the numbers mean, if anything, and what VR means?
