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 configure notification profiles to 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'.

    Enable hardware monitoring in OpManager

  • You can also enable hardware monitoring for individual devices from their Device Snapshot page (Navigate to Inventory -> Devices and then click on a device to open its 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.OpManager's hardware health monitoring allows you to

Collect 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.

Generate hardware health reports

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.
