Monitoring HP Proliant / Integrated Management Log (IML)



Hi everybody,

Is there any possibility to monitor the Integrated Management Log (IML) of my HP Proliant-Server ? (Even if its turned of).

Normally i can access this log anytime direct via ILO Access (Seperat IP-Adress). I tried to add the ILO-Adapters IP as a device - neither the SNMP HP Proliant System state nor the SNMP System state works on this.

Is there any other solution ?

Thanks in advance,

hp ilo iml proliant

There is a huge difference between versions, so we need to ask which version of HP iLO do you use?

With iLO3 or lower the interface just works as a "proxy" that forwards the requests to the operating system and returns the operating systems response. In this case, we recommend to update the HP Insight Manager that is installed on the server. If this doesn't work, you might need to use the drivers that are recommended by HP.

With the latest stable version (14.4.12) the SNMP HP Proliant System Health Sensors channel "overall state" has got a longer list of dependencies including the IML status. The Channel will go into "failure" state if there is a error message in the IML.
