Come join our live training webinar every other Wednesday at 11am PST and hear LogicMonitor experts explain best practices and answer common questions. We understand these are uncertain times, and we are here to help!
For hosts that support IPMI sensors, LogicMonitor can gather that data and integrate it into the monitoring.
All that is required is that IPMI be enabled on the hosts, and IPMI credentials be set for the ipmi.user and ipmi.pass properties located on the resources being monitored within LogicMonitor. If you enable IPMI on the host after you have already added the host into monitoring in LogicMonitor, you can manually trigger Active Discovery to speed up the process of discovering the IPMI information.
Note: IPMI devices (ie. DRACs) typically have their own IP addresses, distinct from those of their hosts. As such, they should be added as separate devices into monitoring.
If IPMI information is not showing up for hosts you expect it to be available on, ensure:
Note: Depending on the manufacturer, an admin level user account may be required for some devices in order to access IPMI information. Please refer to your device manufacturer for details about the necessary credentials.
If you don’t currently have IPMI LogicModules installed in your portal (or if you don’t have the latest versions), you can import them from the LogicMonitor repository.
