This solution monitors the hardware of almost any server (physical, virtual, and blade servers) that compose your data center. No configuration is required, all the hardware components are automatically detected and brought into your BMC  framework. Because the Hardware Monitoring solution offers a single monitoring view, it is the perfect option to monitor a heterogeneous infrastructure.

Main features

This solution provides current and historical information through a centralized console. It collects and brings critical performance data and useful metrics into your BMC console and provides various features to help you manage your IT infrastructure.


  • Discover all of the internal components of servers, disk arrays, fiber switches and tape libraries.
  • Perform an inventory with detailed information about each device’s characteristics.


  • Disks: RAID controllers, hard disks, RAIDs, failure prediction, availability of the volumes.
  • Environment: temperature, internal voltages, power supplies, fans.
  • Critical components: processors, memory modules, ECC errors, failure prediction.
  • Network links: network adapters, link loss, negotiated speed, data traffic, bandwidth utilization.

Supported platforms

This solution monitors the hardware of almost any server and any SAN devices. For an exhaustive list of the supported manufacturers, please refer to the technical documentation.
