Monitoring Appliances with Nagios

Has anyone set up Nagios monitoring to watch a connector appliance's CPU, etc.? If so, how did you get these events delivered from the connector appliance to the Nagios server?

  • You probably have solved the issue by now, but for the record:

    The ILOMs can be configured to send SNMP Traps to a destination. Install a Nagios SNMP Trap receiver on this hosts. This is the only thing you can do afaik.

    We use BOOM (Business Open Operations Manager) to Monitor Appliances and ArcSight, got some handy tools and standards for it.
