Are we talking RSA/RSA II here? 8)

No. We have a tonn of HP servers(DL and BL) - and they have access to the hardware through snmp with the help from hp-drivers. I hoped IBM had something like that.

Example for one of out hp servers in nagios:

OK - System: ‘proliant dl360 g5’, S/N: ‘GBxxxxxxxM’, ROM: ‘P58 06/28/2007’, hardware working fine, da: 2 logical drives, 4 physical drives
System :proliant dl360 g5
Serial No. :GBxxxxxxxM
ROM version :P58 06/28/2007
cpu #0 is ok
powersupply #1 is ok
powersupply #2 is ok
fan 1 speed is normal, pctmax is 50%, location is powersupply, redundance is yes, partner is 2
fan 2 speed is normal, pctmax is 50%, location is cpu, redundance is yes, partner is 3
fan 3 speed is normal, pctmax is 50%, location is cpu, redundance is yes, partner is 1
1 ioboard temperature is 48 (65 max)
2 ambient temperature is 25 (40 max)
3 cpu temperature is 31 (95 max)
4 cpu temperature is 31 (95 max)
5 powersupply temperature is 32 (60 max)

You could install ibm director and let that one notify nagios via snmp traps about problems.

What is you dont want to use IBM director and want to monitor things like Fan and temp with nagios, anyone know of any scripts or OID’s? I saw some on mibdepot and it wasnt returning what i wanted.
