I am looking for recommendations for good software that can report the status of hardware it is installed on through an email or IP Connection.
A bit of background, my organization has 160 locations across the state that host a server at each location. These locations do not have any consistent network connections or a steady connection to a data collection or reporting server, they do however have access to the internet and so can report over email or other indirect reporting tool.
I am looking for some kind of software that can monitor the hardware status, particularly the health of the mirrored raid arrays on the server and report back when that hardware shows danger levels or the raid array becomes unhealthy. We currently use Windows Server 2003 enterprise in our environment.
We currently use IBM System x3200 and System x3200 M2 servers in our environment. We have looked at IBM's web page, but we have not found any good monitoring software that meets our needs.
Any recommendations for software that could handle this would be greatly appreciated.
