Understandig VMWARE hosts Hardware status monitoring



Dear Paessler

I have several hosts monitored, every host is in status GOOD (green). Sometimes the sensor returns a number like 349, others 404. I don't find anything that explain what this number means.

Thank you

Dear Carlascom,

Thank you for your support request.

In this case please contact us directly, as we'll need a couple of details from one of the affected sensors for further analysis. Please provide:

- a screenshot of the sensor's "Overview" tab.

- a screenshot of the sensor's "Log" tab.

- the Sensor's configuration report (which can be generated within the sensor's settings, using the small printer icon on the gray bar at the bottom of the page from where the report can be generated, simply print/save it to the PDF format).
