SNMP Dell PowerEdge



I was responsible for monitoring the operation of general (fans, hard disk, etc.) of the equipment Dell PowerEdge by ZABBIX tool.

However, I can not create any reliable procedure and observed in previous questions that you could provide tips for SNMP OIDS that could solve some problems.

I thank you

If you are trying to create a Poweredge Sensor for your server, you would need to install the Open Manage software which will provide the SNMP information that PRTG needs to monitor the device. Poweredge Health Sensor

Once that software is installed on the server, you should be able to create that sensor on the PE server and monitor those hardware statistics.
