SNMP Monitoring Hardware Status

Hello,

we have a Nimble Storage AF5000. Now i have configured the snmp calls with a monitoring solution. It works fine but i see only performance data and not a state of the hardware. Are there solutions as I could query the hardware state (more then a ping state).

Best regards, Matthew

Matthew,

I use Centreon (Nagios fork) to monitor the hardware on our arrays.  I wrote a REST API nagios check that allows you to check hardware.

I am not for sure what monitoring solution you are using but you could use PowerShell to query the hardware.  The easiest way is to create a "read only" account on the array and use scripting.

Thanks.

Hello Scott,

thank you for your answer.

We have prtg in use, there is now problem to user a powershell script or communicate direct with rest api.

Then i look forward and read the documentation from the rest api.

best regards

matthew

Re: SNMP Monitoring Hardware Status

Can i get a copy of that check? We run check-mk / Nagios here.

Cheers,
