How to monitor HP servers with PRTG?




I tried to import the HP MIBs to PRTG to monitor stuff like a faulty HDD.

I imported all the MIBs from the MIB Kit and made 1 OIDLIB. Now I can add a sensor with this OIDLIB, but it shows me about thousands of sensors I can add.

How can I find the right one out of these many sensors?

Load the OID library in the Paessler MIB importer. There it probably looks more structured.

Enable partial selection by going to File | Enable partial Selection. Now you can select which counters you want in your library.

It also helps to run the created library against the device using our free SNMP tester, to see which counters are actually returning values.

The MIB Kit from HP contains a total of 237 MIB-Files. Is there any easy way to find out what MIB File i have to use?
