SolarWinds SAM monitors hardware health information such as fan, power supply, memory, CPU, and so on, on the following types of hardware:

  • VMware hosts
  • HP ProLiant™
  • Dell PowerEdge™
  • IBM X-Series™
  • HP C7000 and HP C3000 BladeSystems
  • Dell M1000e Blade Enclosure

For SolarWinds SAM to monitor hardware health information, the Hardware Monitoring Agent, provided by the software manufacturer, must be installed, configured, and enabled on each system. Once enabled server-side, you must either:

  • Run a discovery so that SolarWinds SAM can detect that the Hardware Monitoring Agent has been enabled. SolarWinds recommends this approach if you have multiple nodes where the Hardware Monitoring Agent has been enabled, or if you are not already monitoring those nodes.
  • Go to the Node Details page, select List Resources, then check the Hardware Health option.

To configure hardware health monitoring:

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