Disable hardware health monitoring manually

Overview

When a target device stops providing hardware health information (e.g. after moving from a physical to a virtual environment), there is no option in SAM to disable polling hardware health for this node.

Environment

All SAM versions

VMware

Resolution

You can disable this manually by using the following SQL script:

UPDATE APM_HardwareInfo SET IsDisabled = 1 WHERE NodeID = InsertNodeIdHere

After executing this script with the correct NodeID, the All Hardware resources will become hidden on the Node Details page and the hardware polling job will be removed from the Job Engine within 30 seconds.

Additional Information: To delete hardware health data related to a given node, the following script can be used:

DECLARE @NodeID int
SET @NodeID = _InsertNodeIdHere_
DELETE FROM APM_HardwareInfo WHERE NodeID = @NodeID
DELETE FROM APM_HardwareCategoryStatus WHERE NodeID = @NodeID
DELETE FROM APM_HardwareItem WHERE NodeID = @NodeID

Deletion of orphaned sensor historical data can be done immediately by issuing the following command:

EXEC apm_dbm_APM_HardwareItemStatistics_DeleteOrphans
