Monitoring temperature

Hi fellows,

I have a dozen HP Proliant servers gathered in a server room not very well cooled. The airco once failed and a server died (a HP tech came to replace the motherboard).
It gave me the envy to start monitoring the temperature of those servers.
First i would like to know what is a critical temperature for a server ( we have mostly HP Proliant DL 360 G3 G4 and DL 380) and secondly i would like to know what i can do to monitor the temperature of the servers.
I am daily using a free software called nagios to monitor servers that allows me to use snmp intensively, do you guys know what would be the OIDs for temperature or where i can start to search?
If you have any help to provide, i would like to thank you in advance!
All the best.

Re: Monitoring temperature

Hi,
HP SIM is right product for you. It is free and can monitor many parameters besides temperature.

Re: Monitoring temperature

The link you gave me seems very promising. I appreciate but the problem is that each time i try to download SIM from HP the link is broken, it downloads a 0k file...
