Procurve Manager 3.0 - How to show temperature on Procurve switches?

Hi. Is there a way of viewing the temperature of HP procurve switches via Procurve Manager 3.0, instead of logging onto each switches CLI and typing 'Show system Temperature' ?

AFAIK, there is no direct view of "temperature".

One suggestion that you can try though:

Using Policy Manager, create a new policy where
Alert = Scheduled ( choose interval as you desire)
Action = "Config Manager:Group CLI"
> script = use the CLI command "show system temperature"
> Options = capture to file


This might be little closer to what you are looking out to acheive at the best. The advantage is
a) You get to choose the set of devices that you want the information for
b) You get to define the period when this data is fetched.

ps: haven't tried this myself yet!

HTH!

gave it a quick try...works like bingo..:)

in the "capture to file" option, you would mention a file where the output of the command is captured.

So the file would contain raw output like
---
< 1x.xx.xx.x=""> Successful
< show="" system="" temperature="">

System Air Temperatures
# |Current Temp | Max Temp | Min Temp | Threshold | OverTemp | Avg Temp
-------+-------------+----------+----------+-----------+----------+---------
Sys-1 | 27C | 36C | 24C | 40C | NO | 27.00C

--

So if you need the temperature data for some analysis, you may need to write some quick shell script to read this file and parse and pick the specific data that you are looking for from the output - for example only the "Max Temp" column....
