The IPMI plugin uses the OpenIPMI library to read hardware sensors from servers using the Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI). IPMI is very common with server hardware but usually not available in consumer hardware.

It might be reasonable to start with no specific configuration for sensors and look up the exact names after suitable sensor data has been logged since the strings needed aren't exactly ipmitool sdr names.
