Is there a way to integrate HP SIM to any other application.

Hi,

 

We have HP SIM in our environment, it manages all our server and storage. Our requirement is to send /forward all the Events to our own Application. Which will execute some task after analyzing the Event fields.

 

What are the possible ways to achieve this ?

Is there any SDK/API /Web services/ command  exposed by HP SIM to achieve this integration.

 

Thanks,

Priya

Hi,

 

You can configure event forwarding by creating a task in Options --> Events --> Automatic Event Handling.

Re: Is there a way to integrate HP SIM to any other application.

Hi Dave,

 

Thanks a lot for your reply.

 

I looked into Automatic  Event Handling section. It has few options which could be useful for us. But still I have few doubts on the configuration of theses option.,

 

1. Forward as SNMP trap.  ( does it able to forward all the properties of the Event as SNMP trap, do I need to configure any MIB, any any configuration I need to do)

 

2. Run Custom CMS tool ( Still unclear about this, Can I run any of my executable through this option.)

 

One more help I need, I want one way to create one dummy event , so that I shouldn't wait for an real event to test. Is there any way to do that ?

 

Is there no programming resources( API/SDK, script library ) exposed by HP SIM.

 

Thanks again for your help. 

 

Thanks,

Priya

Hi Priya,
To test dummy traps,
You may open iLO interface of any server, enable SNMP and trap destination from Management section, there will be test trap.
Check the received trap on HP SIM events

Create your Automatic Event Handling task based on the event details.

    The SNMP trap forwarding will contain all the info you need but yes, you do need the MIB to decode it. You can generate a test trap from the SMH on an agent server of from the agent control panel applet on a windows server.

    Hi Mahmoud,

     

    Thanks a lot for your reply.

     

    I am very new to HP SIM. I am not able to understand  "iLO interface " . Is it a separate component  or it comes with HP SIM.

     

    In  Automatic Event Handling task  , can i execute any executable , or I need to write something HP propitiatory script ?

     

    Thanks 

    Priya

    the Lights Out Card or iLO, is a chip on the system bard that allows you to connect to the terminal of a server even when the server is powered off. It maintains its own power draw from the mains and allows you to do things like:

     

    1. Connect to the terminal of the hardware
    2. Connect virtual media
    3. Power control the server
    4. Monitor health status
    5. Forward snmp traps generated by the server

    Are you using the SNMP agents or the WBEM agents? You screenshot indicates that you haven't got the SNMP agents running.

    Hi,

    To lanuch iLO interface, you may open your server SMH  https://localserver:2381

    In home section, you will find Management Processor section which includes the status for the iLO network card and link to launch iLO interface.

    Check  my attachment I am pointing to the link to launch iLO interface.

    Hi Priya,

     

    Regarding your question related to run actions in Automatic Event Handling

     

    Yes, you can lauch any executable, but this has to be added as Custom tool in HP SIM which is very easy process.

     

    Select a custom command from the dropdown list.

    Custom Command tools are created under ToolsCustom Commands option.

     

    Refer to Custom Command Tools - Creating a Custom Command Task for more information.

     

    You can read more about Automatic Event Handling on this link

    Hello again,
    This may be because either HP Insight Managment Agents are not installed correctly or your SNMP is not correctly setup
    For assumption #1 you may reinstall Proliabt Support Pack by downloading it from HP website or you will find it in you smart start DVD
    #2 install snmp service and configure both community string and trap destination
