The CD disk with the drivers bundled with the Supermicro PDSGE mainboard contains a monitoring tool that allows monitoring all the parameters from the operating system. This tool is called Supero Doctor III. There is a Windows versions as well as a Linux version of this software, which consists of two major modules. The first module is called Supero Doctor III for Local and is a Web-oriented tool for monitoring remotely the status of Supero mainboards via the local networks. The second module is called Supero Doctor III Client and it allows monitoring the status of the system it is installed in. Of course, we are more interested in the second module, so we will dwell on its peculiarities in the first place.
Supero Doctor III Client features pretty standard interface: it is not very multi-color, it doesn’t have any superior graphics, but is nevertheless very illustrative and informative. The “Summary ” menu item allows checking the entire system status at a glance. It displays all the current voltages, rotation speeds of all fans, system and CPU temperatures, and has a chassis integrity indicator.
The menu item called “Fan ” shows the graphs for the fans connected to the mainboard in real time.
Also there is the actual speed of each fan right under the corresponding graph.
“Voltage ” is responsible for voltages monitoring. These values are also displayed on the time-scale diagrams with the indication of current voltage values for each parameter.
