how to check hardware health status with snmp

Hi,

we have 9000 and itanium series servers..

we want to get hw health info with snmp.. (from nagios)

I have looked at some nagios plugins (shell scripts) and they use something named CPQHLTH-MIB

how can I find and make usable that part of the snmp tree?

TIA

Re: how to check hardware health status with snmp

Hi avizen,

How can I integrate it into my hp-ux OS.

where should I put that file, how can I make snmpd see it.. Is there anything to configure in rc.config.d files.. etc..

Re: how to check hardware health status with snmp

To monitor hardware you'll be better off installing HP SIM -- on HP-UX, WBEM is favored against SNMP, and SIM speaks both protocols. It might be bloat but it's the "official" HP product to monitor hardware.

We use nagios too, so we developped a small plugin for Nsclient++ that checks SIM's hardware status for all monitored devices, and pops-up on nagios is SIM is not green for the device. If you want further info I'll follow this thread and can post some details.

Hi oliver,

I am certainy keen on nagios monitoring..

AFAIK nsclient++ is a windows agent. But I want to check hw health of hp-ux servers (itanium and pa-risc). I hope there is no misunderstandings..

I have also other types of servers (proliants, blades etc..) and from toehr vendors (IBM, dell etc)

Do you have any hw monitoring methods (for other servers), I am interested with them too..

Thanks a lot..

Re: how to check hardware health status with snmp

Hi,

we are using nagios + centereon,

on our servers we added a snmp-trap-destination, and them configured EMS monconfig.

the mib file was extracted from this depot :

Event Monitoring Services Developer's Kit
free from software.hp.com

http://www.madvip.net/node/56

so if somethings happen on our HP-UX servers we will recieve a email/sms.

Re: how to check hardware health status with snmp

Hi selcuk

For me, I prefer to use the /etc/opt/resmon/lbin/monconfig cause it's quite straight foward.

There's a help option also, so you can use it when you're not sure OR need to clarify something regarding the task.

Check the url below for the details on monconfig :

Hi

Also look for below links

http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/diag/index.html#EMS%20Hardware%20Monitors
The EMS Hardware Monitors User's Guide (HP-UX 10.x, HP-UX 11.0, HP-UX 11i) explains the structure of the hw, diags and EMS very well (then progress to the HA ones! at:
http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/ha/index.html#Event%20Monitoring%20Service%20and%20HA%20Monitors )
