Monitoring

HP Hardware Health

LogicMonitor can monitor the underlying hardware health of your HP system when running both Windows or Linux by installing the HP System Management Homepage for Linux/Windows package on the system.  Once installed and snmp is configured, fans, power supplies, RAID status, individual disks, memory, chassis temperature, etc., will automatically be monitored.  

Windows

Installation on Windows system is fairly straight forward and accomplished by installing the latest version of HP System Management Homepage found on the HP Website:

Once installed you will need to ensure that snmp is installed on the Windows host and configured to allow the collector to poll it. To configure open windows services and find "snmp" and go into the properties of the service.
