My mate has half a dozen of these, loves them. I note that SNMP is
optional, I haven't found out how yet. All my monitoring is
virtualised, whilst I can passthrough serial (maybe, not sure my host
even has serial!) or get a MOXA device (those little things rock
http://www.moxa.com/product/NPort_5150.htm) if there is something
native that give me SNMP is way better.

I wrote a nagios plugin to pull temp stats from a script that queries
VMware CIM (it's very hacky, but took me a few mins to knock up), so I
can safely say it's really really easy.
