Hardware Health Monitoring

Monitor the hardware health of key device parameters such as temperature, voltage, power, fan speed, status of processors, disk arrays, etc. of VMware, HP, Dell, Cisco, Nexus & Checkpoint Firewall systems and get alerted if they violate pre-defined thresholds.

  • To enable hardware monitoring, go to Settings → Monitoring → Monitor Settings → Hardware. Select 'Enable' next to the Hardware Monitoring field and click 'Save'.
  • You can also enable hardware monitoring for individual devices from their Device Snapshot page by clicking on the Enable option for Hardware Monitoring under the Summary tab.

Before you start monitoring the hardware of your network device(s), ensure that it satisfies OpManager's prerequisites for hardware monitoring.

Collecting Hardware Health Data:

OpManager uses SNMP to monitor and collect the hardware health status of servers, routers & switches. In-case of VMware, the vSphere API is used to collect sensor data. The hardware health monitors are associated automatically whenever you add a device with proper SNMP credential. If you encounter any problem associating the hardware health monitors, then check for the correct SNMP credentials or contact our support team.

Reporting of Hardware Health:

OpManager provides historical reports on the status of hardware health which can be scheduled based on user needs.

Suppress Hardware alarms at device level:

OpManager allows you to suppress hardware alarms for individual devices. Just go to the Hardware tab in the device snapshot page of the corresponding device, and click on Suppress Hardware Alarms to turn off the hardware alarms for that particular device.

Customize the hardware health monitoring interval at device level:

You can customize the hardware health monitoring interval for each device from the corresponding device snapshot page. To change the hardware monitoring interval for a particular device, go to the Hardware tab in the device snapshot page and edit the value for the Interval option.
