This article details information on monitoring older versions of LEM using NPM.
LEM versions prior to 6.3.1
Prior to LEM 6.3.1, it was not a feature of LEM that it could be added into NPM for monitoring via SNMP. It could only be added as an ICMP node. As an alternative, it was suggested to monitoring the VM itself.
Please keep in mind, LEM has internal monitoring, it makes sure that the logs/data is not going above 90%. If there are any issues with space, then internal warnings, and emails may be triggered.
If you review Rules, you will find that there are out of the box rules that are for monitoring LEM. If they are not enabled yet, you can then enable those which are required, adjusting and tailoring to your requirements.
LEM 6.3.1 onwards allows LEM to be polled via SNMPv3, please see Set up SNMP monitoring in the Orion Web Console for details to enable this.
For more details on the changes in LEM 6.3.1 please see the release notes here.
