HP server monitoring software

Hi,

 

Can anyone here please suggest me what is the name of the software or the components that I need to install so that my Proliant Servers can send out email when there is a problem with the hardware status detected ?

Hi,

 

Not sure for which server generation you are looking for.

Have you checked Alert Email in iLO 4 of Gen8 servers?

You can also use HP SIM for remote monitoring.

 

Thank You!
I am a HP employee.

Re: HP server monitoring software

Suman,

 

This is for various different generations of HP ML server from G5 up to G7 (around 87-100 servers) spread across multiple different towns.

The WAN link is connected using MPLS network with 10 MBps between sites and the Data Center.

 

So I need some suggestion as to when to use HP CIM notifier / Insight notification or to use HP SIM deployed or managed from the main Data Center fo those remote servers.

Re: HP server monitoring software

IMHO the best solution is to use Insight remote support software with or without HP SIM.

 

Start here:

Hope this helps!

Re: HP server monitoring software

Torsten,

 

Does the HP  Insight remote support software is a components of HP SIM or it is another stand alone freeware that comes with the HP server ?

Re: HP server monitoring software

Thank you for the link,

 

So in this case, how does the HP SIM and HP Insight Remote Support (IRS) differ from one to another ?

 

if I perform manual install of HP IRS in all of my Servers from G4 up to G8 can I still manage those servers in HP SIM later on ?

Re: HP server monitoring software

HP SIM has more functionality overall, but is using Insight RS as a plugin for data transfer. Have a look into the manuals linked above.


Hope this helps!
