The ipmitool tool can be used to control, monitor and query about Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) devices on your system. I have used this tool to get information about the IPMI devices on server systems.

$ sudo apt install ipmitool
$ sudo ipmitool sdr list

$ sudo ipmitool sdr list  | grep -i fan

BPB_FAN1         | 21600 RPM         | ok
BPB_FAN2         | 21750 RPM         | ok
CPU0_FAN         | 4200 RPM          | ok
CPU1_FAN         | 4200 RPM          | ok

Tried with: ipmitool 1.8.18 and Ubuntu 18.04
