Developing Management Software

We are trying to get more hardware error information into our web system to help us manage our clients servers. Currently we are using WMI to pull some simple information but it does not get us things like failed harddrives against a SCSI controller.

Insight Manager has this ability, how can we either mimic what Insight Manager does, or communicate with it?

Re: Developing Management Software

Its the agents on the servers not HPSIM itself.
The agents monitor the hardware and if they detect an error then they generate an snmp trap that's sent to the snmp trap destination.

In an HPSIM set up that would be the HPSIM Server. But you can have multiple destinations. Your management would then need to pick up the trap.

Re: Developing Management Software

How does the System Management Homepage on the server work then?

Is it just a log of the information the agent has pulled?

Is it possible to talk to the agent or the System Management Homepage to see the same data? Or is the snmp trap firing constantly?

Thanks for all your help!
