How to get fan speeds on X4200?

    Hi all,

    I have an X4200 (not the M2 variety) running Solaris 10 11/06.
    Is there any way to monitor the status of the fans and so on
    from the command line? prtdiag -v and smbios don't supply the
    info I'd like (frustratingly, prtdiag -v on my SunBlade 1000
    does display the status of the fans...), so any pointers greatfully
    received. (I'd like this info from the command line so that I
    can incorporate the appropriate command into a script which
    monitors other things on this machine.)

    Do you know of a command line equivilent for an Ultra 45? And maybe even
    a command to diag temperature sensors?

    TIA ... Max.
