monitoring ambient temperature with zabbix and ipmitool

I wanted to monitor the ambient temperature in my computer room and decided to try using the built in sensors on my servers. ipmitool showed an ambient temperature, so I did some sed to get just the temperature.

[thomas@hotstuff: ~] $ sudo ipmitool sdr type "Temperature" |grep Ambient
Ambient Temp     | 08h | ok  |  7.1 | 22 degrees C
