[Freeipmi-users] ipmimonitoring: correctable memory error vs. ipmitool:

I have some systems that I monitor with freeIPMI.  Some of those systems,
specifically a number of HP systems, report "Correctable Memory Error" in
the ipmi-sensors or ipmimonitoring output.  I understand that typically
"Correctable Memory Errors" are not in and of themselves a critical
issues.  I've spoken to HP and looked in the iLO IML and we see no memory
alerts mentioned.

My concern is that our monitoring systems detect this error condition and
report on it, but there is no actionable steps for me to take to correct
these issues because:

1.  I don't know when the issue occurred
2.  I don't know how to clear the issue
3.  Since I don't know 1 or 2 I'm not sure if this is a new issue or an
artifact from another event.

During the course of troubleshooting  I noticed that ipmitool -H reports
the memory condition as "0 error".

I tried with:

ipmi-sensors - 1.3.2
ipmi-sensors - 0.7.16.beta1

Both returned the correctable memory error.

Is this possibly a bug?
