This help page is for version 8.5. The latest available help is for version 9.3.
The Hardware Monitor can query hardware status from the following devices:
- VMWare ESX (via ESX APIs)
- Dell DRAC/iDRAC (via IPMI)
- HP iLO (via IPMI)
- IBM RAS (via IPMI)
- Other IPMI devices
Configuration is very simple. Make sure the device has IPMI or ESX credentials set. After that, the
device will be queried and the status of all hardware components will be shown.
Place a check box next to any component for the value you want to be alerted on. You can be alerted if the status is OK, Warning or Error. You can also be alerted if the status value changes.
At the bottom of the monitor you can indicate what should happen if the list of hardware components changes. This might indicate hardware is being added or removed from a system.
Standard Configuration Options
Like all monitors, this monitor has standard buttons on the right for Adding Actions,
setting Advanced Options and setting the Monitor Schedule.
