    I think it would be good to have some kind of standard way to access
    this kind of devices. This should also include watchdogs.

    If they use the same input/ouput via proc it is much easier to use this
    information with mon and/or linux-ha.

    Something which simple to parse like:

    /proc/monitor/lm78:
    Sensor-1-Temp 50 C
    Sensor-1-Fan 4000 RPM
    core 2.8 V
    cpu 3.5 V

    btw: does anybody know what kind of monitor/watchdog the Dell PowerEdge
    Servers (epspecially the low end ones 2200/2300) use ?
