Bug Description

Kolla currently provide node_exporter as the way to monitor servers hardware, however, this exporter does have few limitation due to the way it works.

To compensate those limitation, we could deploy BMC specific exporters that would allow operators to retrieve manufacturer specific probes missing from the default linux sensors framework.

Starting with the two most used manufacturer DELL and HPE, I do propose to integrate the following new exporter that support both manufacturer by leveraging the standard redfish APIs:

I know we could do it through the blackbox exporter but the resulting metrics and prometheus scrape config would be a very long and messy one.

I'll start working on the proposal this week, let me know if something else is already plan so I can cancel this work before going too far.
