Hardware alerts question - VMware mibs vs HP SIM or OpenManage

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

We have several blade servers that are running VMware ESX 5.1. We want to receive hardware alerts by using snmp traps.

 

We have two choices - snmp traps from the VMware mibs that are loaded in OMU or use HPSIM (or OpenManage).

 

My question is this: The VMware mibs have traps for Processor, Memory, etc. Will these traps give detailed information that HPSIM or OpenManage will ? ex. If there is a memory error will the Vmware traps show what DIMM it is, what blade it occured on, etc.?

 

Thank you

-Gino

As far as I know ESXi doesn't support SNMP, use WBEM.

I don't have hardware problems with my ESXi's on HP ProLiant, but I think that detailed information about errors will be.
