We have a lot of IBM x86 servers that we need to monitor for hardware issues(disk failure/temperature/fans). Around 50% of them have IMM ports hooked up and we are able to monitor for SNMP traps using Nagios. In case of any hardware issues IMM will send a trap to the Nagios server IP and we get notified.
The issue here is that we have a lot of servers in various locations that we can't connect the IMM ports. Is there an agent that we can install on these servers to monitor for hardware failure? Something that does not need IMM port connectivity and will use the regular network Interface? The OS running on these servers are Windows and RHEL.
We could install Nagios agent(nsclient++ or NRPE) but as per the information I have received they can't read hardware information.
What are my options?
