Hardware alarm on /var/log/messages

Hi HP,
Today, our customer ask me about the wording of Hardware alarm on /var/log/messages

The Alarm for CPU , Memory, disk, system reboot, Temperature and Fan

They need to know the wording to detect those kind of alarms on /var/log/messages file. I try to get some information about this but there is some case I can not find , If someone here can guide me to those information , I'm very appreciate.

Thx in advanced

Hi,

Nickel will only generate the report.

You can also use cstm or EMS (Event monitoring sytem) for creating alarm

You can use different application to create a hardware alarm and for this you can check for Application Manager , in this you can monitor hdd, ram, CPU to monitor and can send sms or email to administrator.

go to www.appmanager.com

For syslog you can use syslog-ng to monitor.
