Just had a Weird problem!!!!!!
We had a Dell Open Manager which Monitors the temp of servers.
Can we monitor it through Kaseya to generate some alerts if temp goes beyond a defined threshold
!!!!!!! either through some scripts or else??????
Open Manager will dump alerts to the event log - make a Dell Open Manage Event Log set to monitor for those events...
I've found that in the past when this happens the event logs are often littered with errors. This would have been mostly on HP servers but I should think they're not too different as I'm sure the errors were windows generated. Will happily stand corrected though.
Yeah,,,,,that sounds Great..
But would it be a BAD IDEA if i use SNMP monitoring for same?
I work with proprietary desktop machines and we have this type of information available to us in WMI. We wrote a procedure that reads that value, compares it to the high and low thresholds and then if they are outside of that we create a Windows Event log entry that we monitor for. This way we only get what we want written to the event logs and it cuts down on false alarms. Going foward I am hoping that the new monitoring tool provides us with native WMI monitoring and we can monitor the WMI field directly, I got the feeling it was going to be possible at the UC last month
We use dell openmanage / HP insight mangaer to do HW moniroring on physical servers has been working fine - they log to event logs and we then alert.
