Description of problem:

On some buggy servers is possible to get IPMI sensors with non-printable
characters in the name. If you use the script to send
the sensor data to Ganglia, the script sends these sensors breaking the whole
Ganglia installation, because gmetad can not parse the output from gmond, due
to these invalid characters

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. You need a server that reports invalid characters in sensor names
2. Send the data to Ganglia with
3. Ganglia will stop reporting data.
