Presumably because you can use it to monitor the temp and fan sensors and 
stuff and raise alarms if they go out of bounds.


And from the info page:

Project Mission / Background / Ethics:

 The primary mission for our project is to provide the best and most complete 
hardware health monitoring drivers for Linux. We strive to produce well 
organized, efficient, safe, flexible, and tested code free of charge to all 
Linux users using the Intel x86 hardware platform. The project attempts to 
support as many related devices as possible (when testing and documentation 
is available), especially those which are commonly included on mainboards.

 Our drivers provide the base software layer for utilities to acquire data on 
the environmental conditions of the hardware. We also provide a sample 
text-oriented utility to display sensor data. While this simple utility is 
sufficient for many users, others desire more elaborate user interfaces. We 
leave the development of these GUI-oriented utilities to others. See our 
useful addresses page for references. 


NB: I've used these at home from time to time, but we don't use them on our
      IBM cluster as we can grab the same info out of CSM.
