Monitoring Resources Using CLI

OpManager monitors the system resources using SNMP by default. But if needed, you can also add monitors based on CLI, and both these types of monitors will work in tandem. All the Unix Servers templates have the resource monitors preconfigured. All you need to do is to select the CLI monitors and associate them to the required devices.


For monitoring the Unix servers, make sure either Telnet or SSH is enabled on them.

Steps to configure Telnet/SSH Monitoring:

  1. Navigate to Inventory -> Devices and then click on the device you wish to monitor to open its snapshot page.
  2. Click the Actions button.
  3. Now, from the list of resource monitors, select the CPU, Memory, and Disk Utilization monitors which has the protocol name as CLI against the monitor name.
  4. Once done, click Add. The monitors are added to the device under the Monitors column.
