How to monitor HP VLS 9000 with nagios or similar ?

Hello all,

I am in the process of writing scripts to proactively monitor our HP VLS 9000 with Nagios.

Before i begin, has anyone done this already, and willing to share their monitoring scripts ?

Also, suggestions welcome on how best to monitor the health of this box, i.e. does it support snmp gets, or does one have to log in via ssh to see the status.

For the moment we are most interested in the most obvious health checks (i.e. disk full, raid status, etc)

Suggestions, assistance is welcome :)

Hi,

In addition to monitoring the health of the device through the GUI the VLS has a notification system that can be configured through the GUI to send out SNMP traps and e-mail for notifications generated by the system.

Does anyone know if any MIBS exist to proactively monitor it using SNMP ?

I have in fact found this out. (solution follows for the search engines)

HP VLS seems to support similar SNMP MIB as HP ESL does. Therefore i could get some info by snmpwalking HP's oid range: 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2

I configured nagios to check HP VLS with check_snmp using oid 1.3.6.1.4.1.11.2.36.1.1.5.1.1.3.1

According to this guide: http://pandorafms.org/index.php?sec=community&sec2=repository&lng=es&action=view_PUI&id_PUI=114

then possible results are:
1=ok
2=unknown
3=ok
4=warning
5=critical
6=unrecoverable failure

I have attached my commands.cfg to use with nagios.

Comments, suggestions are welcome : )

Hello Pall,

I was wondering if you completed the script about monitoring the VLS in Nagios.

Is it possible you share the script with me?

Best Regards.
