SAM Hardware Polling: SAM can monitor hardware (servers) from VMware hosts, HP ProLiant, Dell PowerEdge, and the IBM X-Series. Hardware monitoring is achieved by polling via SNMP, WMI, or VMware API, depending upon the node.

NPM Hardware Polling: NPM polls hardware health only for network devices, such as routers and switches using SNMP.
