HBA Temperature monitoring

Recommended Posts


A lot of users are most likely using LSI controllers from Broadcom in initiator target mode, it would be nice to monitor the temperatures in the dashboard as these cards get quite hot. Seeing trends over time is a good way to decide if you need to add more cooling/fans or what have you. 
Came across a tool that seems to work on at least my card which is an LSI 9305-24i, I would assume most 93xx cards would work. There are also alternative tools (Megacli and lsiutil) that supports other models but unsure exactly which, it would be some work figuring out what supports what, but if more are interested there shouldn't be that big of a deal to at least look at the most commonly used models, 9xxx-series is at least among the most used I would think.  


Unzip to folder 

Enter folder

unzip Unified_storcli_all_os.zip

go to unzipped folder -> Linux 

open storcli-007.2707.0000.0000-1.noarch.rpm in 7zip 

browse to /opt/MegaRAID/storcli/ 

copy storcli64-file to somewhere on your unraid box 

In terminal, run: ./storcli64 /c0 show temperature
(chmod +x if it's not executable)


should give the folllwing output; 
root@tower:./storcli64 /c0 show temperature

CLI Version = 007.2707.0000.0000 Dec 18, 2023
Operating system = Linux 6.1.64-Unraid
Controller = 0
Status = Success
Description = None

Controller Properties :

Ctrl_Prop                       Value
ROC temperature(Degree Celsius) 37

Not sure if it's possible to utilize this tool to poll for readings ?
