Compaq Insight Manager XE

By spt87 ·
Has anyone successfully used XE to monitor non-Compaq servers? I'm particularly interested in monitoring HP Intel servers with it. Ideally, I would be able to retrieve BIOS, OS and software revision information.

I have loaded some additional MIBS from HP, but so far they haven't helped much.

Thanks,

Scott

I believe you can also load some insight agents on the servers that work pretty well

I am using it to monitor some servers based on non-Compaq hardware but getting the specific SNMP strings mapped properly has been a real challenge on the hardware side and I'm still not entirely pleased with how it's working.

I've had much more success writing a custom configuration file for MRTG and that has given me the chance to roll servers, routers and switches all into the same monitoring system by using the manufacturer's MIBs from Compaq, HP, Cisco, etc.

If you're going to do that, a MIB-walking tool like GetIF is invaluable to finding exactly which SNMP OIDs you want to monitor.
