HP Insight Manager Agents for non-Itanium Linux?

Hi.  I've got HP Insight Manager 7.0 running under Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.2 on a HP ProLiant DL380 G5.  It's monitoring other physical (HP ProLiant) and virtual machines which are also running RHEL 6.2.

 

Using the Proliant Service Pack I've installed the hpsmhd, hp-health and hp-snmp-agents services/RPMs.  HP SIM is happily monitoring these machines using SNMP:1.0, SSH:SSH-2.0-OpenSSH_5.3, SMH:2.0.

 

What I'd like to do is some basic 'process monitoring'.  Have HP SIM send an event if process XXX stops running on a monitored machine.  Start to use HP SIM for 'standard' monitoring as well as the specialised HP hardware/fault monitoring.

 

After searching the web I discovered that the 'HP Foundation Agent' can do this ... for a Windows client.  That web page referered me to the equivalent for Linux - 'HP Insight Foundation Suite for Integrity with Linux'.  I managed to find that software, but it is only for HP's 'Integrity' - i.e. Itanium processor - Linux machines.

 

I haven't been able to find any hint of the HP Insight Foundation Suite - aka the 'hpima' service/RPM? - for the x86_64 (or i386) versions of Linux.

 

Can anyone help?

 

My apologies if I've made a mess of the various acronyms; I'm really quite confused with all the various web pages and products out there with the words 'HP Insight' and 'Agent' included within.  As a side issue, if anyone knows of a place where, on one page, a diagram or precis of all these various packages/products and how they interelate can be found, I would be most grateful!  :-)  Many thanks for any help.

Hello Brad

 

Perhaps you can find it on the HP Linux Software Delivery Repository

It really is confusing with all these different pieces of HP software... Good luck!

Thanks Michael, but no luck. I downloaded the ones that looked even remotely possible but none of them had what I'd read about for the 'Foundation Agent'. :-(
