Connector for Sun/Oracle ILOM (SNMP)

Should you install this patch?

  • Install this patch if you are monitoring your Sun or Oracle x86/x64 server through its ILOM card in SNMP.
  • Adds support for rack mounted servers.

What does it fix?

  • Connector has been rewritten to minimize the number of OIDs polled (to prevent ILOM failure).
  • A more robust discovery and collection mechanism has been implemented to prevent false missing device alerts and "no collect value" error messages.
  • Power Supply, Network Card and Other Device classes were added for Rack mounted servers.

How to install the patch?

  1. Copy the following file to %RSM_HOME%\RSMxx\SEN_HW\hdf_2xx\ on each RSM:
    • MS_HW_SunILOMSNMP.hdf
  2. No further actions are required. The new component monitoring will be added at the next discovery.
