HP SIM Implmentation


HP SIM Implmentation

I need a little direction with HP SIM. I am looking to monitor HP physical hardware, not their OS's (not Windows, Linux, etc). I am looking to get alerts about temperature threshholds, among other similar things about the hardware. Currently, I have HP SIM 7.3 installed and running. I went through the frist time setup wizard and discovery which found IP addresses but nothing with useful information (which I expected).


I've read through tons of documentation and I can't seem to find a document that talks about implementing my needs above.  Also, I currently am not using iLO.


Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: HP SIM Implmentation

The machines that I monitor are primarily Linux based machines. I installed the following RPMs in this order:

Once you've got those installed, I would recommend setting up and SNMP pass through using your iLO device from the Administation section, then discover the iLO device, then the machine. They should automatically associate with one another. All of the data you're looking to gather is provided to me via SNMP on these devices.

There's more than likely an easier way, but this is what's worked for me in the past. I hope this helps you get started.

Re: HP SIM Implmentation

So basically, I need to configure SNMP and iLO on the server hardware? Thanks

Hello there,

Not only SNMP but also the agents and SMH as mentioned in the first reply.
What type of ILO's do you have ? ILO 4 can be monitored with ILO agentless.

Kind regards,
