Hardware monitoring performed through the SCOM agent installed in the Windows OS? RRS feed

  • Question

  • A basic question here.

    Isn't hardware monitoring performed through the SCOM agent installed in the Windows OS?  

    I'm aware we have hardware specific management packs. We are currently using Dell and HP management packs. But just want an expert opinion before i can present it to my folks. 

    Kindest Regards

  • Hi,

    Once you have imported and configured (if required) the hardware vendor management pack, in general the hardware monitoring is performed by the SCOM agent, but it depends how the management pack has been authored.

  • Hi,

    what kind of monitors and rules are handled by the agent depends solely on the Management Packs you deploy. There are no Managements Packs, which offer this capability other then the vendor management packs, so the answer ist:

    You need the vendor specific (Dell and HP) management packs in order to be able to monitor your hardware. 

    Regarding HP: Here is an article about Gen10 monitoring with SCOM I wrote a couple fo weeks ago:

    I hope I was able to help. Regards,
