Using ipMonitor's Custom SNMP Monitor, Administrators can monitor the status of each individual power supply or the status of all power supplies on a Dell server to ensure they continue to provide a steady supply of electrical power to the system. Note:The OIDs referenced in this article assume that the Dell Server supports OIDs defined by MIB-Dell-10892. Monitors were tested against servers running DellOpenManage??? Server Administrator 1.6+.

Here's how to create the Custom SNMP Monitor:

  1. Click on the Devices tab.
  2. Click on "All Managed Devices"
  3. Select the Device that represents the Dell server you wish to monitor and click "Add - Add New Monitor"
  4. In the left-hand pane, click "SNMP".
  5. In the right-hand pane, click "Custom SNMP"
  6. Give the Monitor a unique and descriptive name and ensure the address is correct.
  7. For the OID, use one of the OIDs found in the tables below, depending on what you wish to monitor.
  8. Under Analysis of Test Results, set the "Analyze the test results" as "Numeric Data" and the "Result is" to "=""3".
  9. Click OK

Example OIDs:

Monitor Name Dell Diagnostic Service :: Combined Status - Power Supplies
Monitor Type Custom SNMP Monitor
SNMP Object Type systemStatePowerSupplyStatusCombined
OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1.200.10.1.9.1
Returns This attribute defines the power supply status of all power supplies in this Dell chassis. The result is returned as a combined status value.

1 = other: the status of the object is not one of the following:
2 = unknown: The status of the object is unknown (not known or monitored)
3 = ok: The status of the object is ok
4 = nonCritical: The status of the object is warning, non-critical
5 = critical: The status of the object is critical (failure)
6 = nonRecoverable: The status of the object is non-recoverable (dead)

Monitoring Condition Pass if equal to 3

Monitor failure indicates that the status of the power supplies in this Dell chassis is currently not 'ok'.

 

 

Monitor Name Dell Server :: Power Supply Status - #1
Monitor Type Custom SNMP Monitor
SNMP Object Type powerSupplyStatus.1
OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1.600.12.1.5.1.1
Returns The status of the Dell power supply.

1 = other: the status of the object is not one of the following:
2 = unknown: The status of the object is unknown (not known or monitored)
3 = ok: The status of the object is ok
4 = nonCritica: The status of the object is warning, non-critical
5 = critical: The status of the object is critical (failure)
6 = nonRecoverable: The status of the object is non-recoverable (dead)

Monitoring Condition Pass if equal to 3

Monitor failure indicates that the status of this power supply is currently not 'ok'.

 

 

 

 

Monitor Name Dell Server :: Power Supply Status - #2
Monitor Type Custom SNMP Monitor
SNMP Object Type powerSupplyStatus.2
OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.674.10892.1.600.12.1.5.1.2
Returns The status of the Dell power supply.

1 = other: the status of the object is not one of the following:
2 = unknown: The status of the object is unknown (not known or monitored)
3 = ok: The status of the object is ok
4 = nonCritical: The status of the object is warning, non-critical
5 = critical: The status of the object is critical (failure)
6 = nonRecoverable: The status of the object is non-recoverable (dead)

Monitoring Condition Pass if equal to 3

Monitor failure indicates that the status of this power supply is currently not 'ok'.
