PSP 8.x log alerts to syslog

Is there any way to configure the health agents to log alerts (like failed fans/temperatures/raid controller msgs) to syslog?

Sending snmp traps will not do any good here.
Also, is there any option to configure thresholds for the fans and temperatures ?

Thanks in advance.

Re: PSP 8.x log alerts to syslog

check out the man page for hp-health
(have not tried this)

The "hpasmlited" application has the ability to log raw IPMI
messages (as does the hp-OpenIPMI package) to the "/var/log/mes-
sages" file to assist with debugging IPMI BMC integration
issues. Edit the file,


and modify the line,

PFLAGS="-f $(guess_dev_file)"


PFLAGS="-f $(guess_dev_file) -d 4"

under the line containing: 'PNAME="hpasmlited"'.

Are you running Insight Control for Linux? And if so, do you have Nagios monitoring configured on your CMS?

Re: PSP 8.x log alerts to syslog

These are RH 5.4 BL680c Servers
I have installed PSP 8.40 and hp-health hp-snmp-agents and hp-ilo are running.
I want to log hardware events (like DIMM errors / hdd problems / fan / temp events) to syslog.
Is there anything else that should be installed ?
