[Freeipmi-users] Input on new ipmiseld daemon

Hey everyone,

The next big release of FreeIPMI will include a new daemon called
'ipmiseld'.  Similar to the ipmievd daemon w/ ipmitool, it monitors the
IPMI SEL and logs those messages to the syslog so that everything is in
one place.  It adds many FreeIPMI-isms as additional features,

- One daemon can monitor & log multiple hosts w/ hostrange support
(presently tested up to ~140 nodes)

- Using the results from SEL event interpretations (i.e. is the SEL
event nominal, warning, or critical), events can be filtered out before
being logged.

- SEL logs can be automatically cleared when full.

- Log message formats are configurable using a printf-like style.

I'm sure there can be issues with certain motherboards, so I would
appreciate any input from anyone on this new tool/daemon.  Any input on
bugs, issues, or even better default values would be welcome.

The latest alpha release with this code can be found here:
