HP Proliant HW monitor

The hppro_hwmon Perl script will query the HP Linux hpasmcli and hpacucli command-line tools to check or show the health of your Proliant hardware. It will check following components:

  • Fans
  • Memory DIMMs
  • Power Supplies
  • Server
  • Temperature Controls
  • RAID Controller
  • Physical Drives
  • Logical Drives

The script will check with a standard set of components but can be easily customized to fit your needs

Note: The script has been tested on older Proliant G2-G6 generation systems only


Code

Make sure you check and customize if necessary the @command and @recipients variables before running the script!

Download the script from following GitHub repository: https://github.com/patvdv/hppro_hwmon


Dependencies/Requirements

  • Linux: any version that is officially supported by HP for their Proliant platform (see Proliant support matrices)
  • Perl: any recent version should do
  • HP System Health Application and Insight Management Agents: free download available from HP website.
  • HP Array Configuration Utility CLI for Linux: free download available from HP website.


Usage

The script can be run with either of 2 options and should be executed as the root user:

-s (show): show the current hardware health/status
-c (check): report any failed hardware or problematic events (on STDOUT) and send an alert mail.

Example 1: using ''-s''

Below listing show the command executed (between square brackets) and the resulting status.
