Add server hardware monitoring

Updated: 3-9-2017

There are two ways for administrators to add server hardware monitoring for nodes; through the Add Node wizard, and through the Node Details group of the Node Details page.

Add Node Wizard

From the Add Node wizard, the option to display Hardware Health of Servers is available after a node has been defined. Check this box to enable hardware health monitoring.


Manually add hardware monitoring

You may need to log in with an administrator account to perform this action.

  1. On the Web Console, click My Dashboards > Home.
  2. In the All Nodes resource, click the node you want to monitor.
  3. Click List Resources.

  4. Select Hardware Health Sensors, and click Submit.

To disable hardware monitoring, navigate back to this screen and uncheck Hardware Health of Servers, then click Submit.
