Hardware Monitoring

Large organizations manage numerous pieces of Hardware, deployed in multiple locations, all using different technology stacks. When it comes to Hardware Monitoring, there are several issues we frequently come across when speaking with IT teams. Sysadmins are struggling to find reliable Hardware Monitoring options. For example, they are unsure about computer room temperatures and how much power they are actually using, and they need to keep an eye on their RAID array state and be alerted when yet another disk fails. IT teams are seeking a Hardware Monitoring Solution that can meet all of their requirements.

Opsview's hardware monitoring stack can meet all these needs and more.

Key Benefits

With out of the box capabilities for reading host information from Dell's iDRAC and APC’s UPS / PDU / temperature probes you can monitor and graph alerts based on the state of the hardware, the environment inside the data center and anything in-between. On top of this, Opsview’s Hardware Monitoring Solution is extendable and highly customizable with Opsview’s Integrations, Opspacks and custom modules.

In short, Opsview can:

  • Monitor, graph and report on temperature/voltage/power consumption from supported devices.
  • Monitor, graph, report and alert on RAID arrays 
  • Monitor hardware state including RAID and network links via iDrac rather than the host OS
