How to scrape power usage from servers using grafana

Version: v9.3.2-45365

We are looking to implement monitoring of power and temperature usage with grafana and open-telemetry. I attempted to ask this question on stack overflow, but they couldn’t answer it and locked the question immediately.

After doing research all I can find is information on using telegraf to scrape the data from IPMI and send to grafana. Is there a better way to do this at the software level that does not include smart-monitoring outlets?

My first thought was to use Node-RED to scrape and send the data to InfluxDB. Looks like it can be done using SNMP. More here: Input Linux IPMI Data to InfluxDB via Node Red - General - Node-RED Forum


Thank you for the response. I will take a look.
