health monitoring is built-in, aren't you running RSM?

You can use Event notifier, WEBES, IRSS or SIM (all HP).

Hope this helps!

Insight RSS:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/servers/management/insight-remote-support/index.html

Basically all of them are connecting to command view and alert you (and HP) about problems with your hardware (not only EVA).

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

It is a licensed product. The license allows you to use the product without paying additional money as long as the system is under warranty or covered by a service contract.

Re: Any monitoring(HP or third Party) tool to check the health of EVA?

It really depends on your needs.

Basically command view will report events to windows. So the event notifier might be enough. WEBES can get command view event directly from there and can alert you too. IRSS is based on WEBES and can open a support case at HP additionally. SIM may be a bit oversized for monitoring this single device.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: Any monitoring(HP or third Party) tool to check the health of EVA?

RSM is a framework for automating Business Copy and Continuous Access processes (Snapshots, Clones and replication). It has nothing to do with EVA monitoring.

IRSS (Insight Remote Support Standard) is a solution if you don't (want to) use HPSIM and WEBES is only one module of IRSS.

IRSA (Insight Remote Support Advanced) is kind of a 'plugin' for HPSIM. Again, WEBES is a module of IRSA.


HPSIM+IRSA is the most advanced solution and gives the best feature sets. You can enter you warranty contract+ carepack numbers for the EVA, servers and other components and can even verify your entitlements against HP's database. That way we've found a wrong serial number registration _before_ the customer had a hardware problem and we could fix that in advance!! As far as I know, that feature is not available on IRSS.

I agree with Torsten that it might be overkill for just one device, but once you're familiar with it you can always add other components later.

Re: Any monitoring(HP or third Party) tool to check the health of EVA?

According to the release notes IRSS supports the array based management on EVA 4400 with Command view 9.1 minimum.

Hope this helps!

Hi,
Sounds like you are using the ABM feature of the WOCP.
You can also set up SNMP tramps via command view as well to send to SIM.

Re: Any monitoring(HP or third Party) tool to check the health of EVA?

Hi Fenny,
I think the suggestions / links already supplied by Uwe and Torsten are probably what you require.
You will now need to investigate them further to see if they provide what you require.

Re: Any monitoring(HP or third Party) tool to check the health of EVA?

Hi Mark,

I have installed command view9.1 and HPSIM6.1 on same hosts.

In EVA server options i have given the IP of the command view EVA machine. Now i want to know how can i configure HPSIM to discover EVA and only show critical alerts on SIM.

If there's any manual for this please send me the link

Re: Any monitoring(HP or third Party) tool to check the health of EVA?

Hi Fenny,
Not used SIM with eva really so I do not have any suitable knowledge to help you out with pointers etc.
Hopefully somebody else will help you out with this part?
