[Check_mk (english)] HP ILO Monitoring

If you have the various HP Insight agents installed, this information should be reported via the SNMP agent on the host.

What OS?

For linux, have a look here: https://wiki.icinga.org/display/howtos/Monitoring+HP+ProLiant+Hardware

I haven't done the array part yet to be honest. It looks like it'll need a separate check. However, just installing hp-health and hp-snmp-agents, gets me temperature, cpu, memory, fan, raid controller, and physical disk monitoring via SNMP.

For Windows, you just need to run through the installer on the HP Support Pack (or whatever they're calling it these days).

Thank you,

Hi there,

Hope everyone is well.

I'm just wondering what the current best way of monitoring HP ILO3/4 is?

It can send SNMP alerts but from what I can see it's not walkable which is a shame.

I am wondering whether accessing it from within the OS is the best option or whether writing something that will talk to it over the ssh console makes the most sense.

What's everyone else doing these days? I'm looking to target things like unplugged PSUs, failed disks etc.

Many thanks for your thoughts.
