Re: HP SIM - HP Insight Control



SIM is free Insight Control isn't, so if you only want to monitor your hardware SIM would be my first choice.


SIM can be downloaded from


Insight Control adds OS deployment VM manangement etc, so if you already have that the choice is easy.

Insight Control is a suite SIM is just hardware monitoring, that is you can also montor the up/down events from othet things like virtuals etc. You can also do basic cluster monitoring and diskspace but that's about it.


SIM and Insight Control have been replaced by HP by Oneview but that suite is more like Insight Control, if you just need the haredware monitoring i would recomend SIM.


Insight Control prices can be found here :,C6N31A,T9101ABE,C6N38AAE,C6N38A,C6N28AAE,C6N27A&jumpid=in_r3924_insightcontrol_vplazaola_heasmith

Re: HP SIM - HP Insight Control

If you feel you want to use Insight Control and take advantage of power capping and control on your HP devices, note that it also requires an Insight Control license per iLO, which is basically the next level above iLO Advanced (usually referred to as an iCE license).  It's not a lot more, but a differently license level.
