RE: VIOS monitoring



fixed


IBM Systems Director can monitor VIOS and you can set up the monitoring and
automation to do all the things you asked about. It also has the
capability to send SNMP traps as the action taken when an event occurs.
VIOS comes with the required agent pre-installed, and on the latest levels
of the VIOS, it is also configured to start by default.

The down-side is while the agent is pre-installed on the VIOS, you need the
Director Server installed and set up to actually do the monitoring and
event automation. Systems Direction installation and set up isn't terribly
difficult, but I would not call it simple.

You can also monitor your partitions i with Systems Director. With the
latest version (6.3.2) that came out last December, there are some nice
enhancements for monitoring i.

Larry,

I second your statement, must have SNMP capability. There seems to be quite
a bit tools of tools intended to analyze performance at the research level,
but I am more concerned with alerting someone when there is a hardware
failure, network outage, real-time performance threshold, etc. iDoctor,
MPG, and NMON are great tools but I am looking for a simple "agent" that
will recognize critical events and then notify someone via SNMP trap.

I've been trying to get PRTG to do SNMP to VIOS but so far no joy at all. I
haven't put a lot of time into it, but the issue seems to be SNMP
configuration because I've not gotten any response whatever.

Is anyone using 3rd party products to monitor IBM VIO server? I am
looking for something that can monitor the VIO event log, real-time
performance, and hardware failures. The program would also need to
escalate applicable events via email or SNMP, preferably SNMP. Thanks
