Hi Alexander,

I remember seeing this before.  Some of the Dell motherboards report
illegal sensor events.  I don't know if it is a bug on their motherboard
or an intentional OEM extension (i.e. the events might be used for their
Dell specific software).

To deal with this, all you need to do is pass
--ignore-unrecognized-events to ipmimonitoring.  It will ignore the
illegal events.
