3rd Party Server Monitor with Insight Mg

By nosrednaanit ·
Does anyone know of a utility that can graph (or log somehow) the internal temps of Compaq servers using the measurement that Insight Manager reports? We have a farm of servers in a very small room that doesn't get very good ventilation and we are concerned about the temperature of the boxes during the weekend when the AC isn't on. CIM can give you the real-time temp, but not any past info. Compaq doesn't know of anything that can do this. TIA

3rd Party Server Monitor with Insight Mg

We have this same challenge and I have been looking for any option that would work. I had thought that we might lower the alarm threshold and use Compaq Event Notifier to send an e-mail every time the temperature exceeded the threshold and then just commit those e-mails to a log but I haven't been able to get that to work.

As a workaround, we used a thermal logging module that we obtained from radioshack.com and put the external probe at a location where we thought it might approximate the CPU temperature. The information can be downloaded via the serial port and sent to the central office.

If Compaq can be convinced to publish an API for CIM temperature reading, it should be a relatively trivial programming task to log that information. If they hear from enough of us, they might even do it themselves.

regards!

That was a very thoughtful and thorough first answer. Why don't you go ahead and accept that answer and close the question.
