D2700 hardware alarms (disk failure, power failure) via SNMP

We have HP D2700 disk enclosure and we would like to monitor D2700 (connected to HP Proliant DL360G8) for alarms.I have following questions regarding this.

 

  • What are the options available for reporting D2700 hardware alarms (disk failure, power failure) via SNMP?

     

  • We understand the D2700 to have an Ethernet interface for controller A and B and alarms are available via SNMP via this interface.

     

  • Can anyone provide the actual alarms via this interface? (MIB and alarm list) As we have a number of D2700’s and would like to minimize the number of physical connections to the switch and associated IP addresses.

     

  • Is there a mechanism to monitor the D2700 from the SCSI connected HPDL360 and raise SNMP alarms from the DL360 for hardware failures on the D2700? If so can anyone provide details and the actual alarms and MIB via this mechanism?

Thanks!

Re: D2700 hardware alarms (disk failure, power failure) via SNMP

Hi, we have a bunch of D2600 but haven't looked into SNMP monitoring via the ethernet interface on the shelves.

 

We instead monitor it by running various hpacucli commands and output is formatted and polled via nagios.

 

It's worth noting that the shelf is stressed quite a lot if you run a verbose enough hpacucli command (meaning noticable performance pits - at least we noticed this when running benchmarks). So getting info through another possibly more light-weight out-of-band interface would be very interesting.
