VMware ESXi & HP DL360/380 WBEM Information

Hi!

 

I've created a script for our monitoring system at work that "polls" our HP DL360/380 servers running VMware ESXi for hardware status and information.

 

I've been using "VMware CIM SMASH/Server Management API Reference" as a guide for possible return values for the things i'm testing for.

But there are some Vendor specific parts which i haven't been able to find anywhere. For instance, the WBEM properties FormFactor and MemoryType regarding physical memory modules are returning values in the "Vendor specific" area.

 

These are the default available value pairs for the MemoryType WBEM property:

 

0 Unknown
1 Other
2 DRAM
3 Synchronous DRAM
4 Cache DRAM
5 EDO
6 EDRAM
7 VRAM
8 SRAM
9 RAM
10 ROM
11 Flash
12 EEPROM
13 FEPROM
14 EPROM
15 CDRAM
16 3DRAM
17 SDRAM
18 SGRAM
19 RDRAM
20 DDR
21 DDR-2
22 BRAM

 

Everything above 22 is "Vendor Specific". On our servers, MemoryType=24 is returned by WBEM.

 

I've found some HP documents for VMware ESXi and HP WBEM Providers, but those are not complete. For the MemoryType they all say "Enumerator indicating the type of memory module.  Refer to MOF file for details."

 

I've tried finding the "MOF files" without success. I've found generic MOF files which specify the above mentioned value pairs.

 

Any clues where i can find these HP specific MOF files, or some HP document that actually lists the possible return values?
