Sensonrs for HPE Synergy via OneView



User story

As a PRTG user, I want to monitor HPE Synergy via the OneView API.

Details of user story

To monitor HPE Synergy system I need to use the OneView API and to access the API I need to generate an auth-token by logging in via /rest/login-sessions. Auth-Tokens last up to 24 hours after they have been last used. The auth-token is used for all further request to the API in the header filed Auth. Another header field that is needed is x-Api-Version to specify the supported version of the API.

Currently querying the API works with the REST custom sensor and by manually set HTTP headers, the responses of the API contains JSON data and can already be filtert with JSONPath that is provided by the PRTG.

So far there are two main issues:

  • Creating the REST configuration files is rather problematic because they are static and adding or removing channels affects all sensors that use that template.
  • Managing the auth-tokens could be challenging because they need to configured and updated for each sensor if they cannot be inherited.

I will continue to develop the custom sensors and I would like to also offer a collaboration on this project.

Acceptance criteria

  • A credential type for HPE OneView like for example there is one for Orchestra
  • Sensors that provide information about the fans, interconnects, enclosures, environment
  • An alternative to the point above would be the abilitiy that channels could be automatically created by iterating over the JSON, this would also generally be a gread addtion.
