Monitor hardware health
This SolarWinds Platform topic applies only to the following products:
Hybrid Cloud Observability Essentials — Hybrid Cloud Observability Advanced
NAM — NPM — NTA — SAM — SRM
With hardware health monitoring, you can get immediate insight into hardware issues on your network. Hardware health informs you that your devices are in Up, Warning, Critical, or Unknown states.
Supported devices: Aruba, Cisco, Dell, F5, HP, Juniper devices, and Arista 7500E chassis.
When adding a device into the SolarWinds Platform database for monitoring, polling for hardware health statistics is enabled by default.
Hardware health statistics are polled through SNMP, from a MIB tree on your devices.
If hardware health polling does not work as expected, make sure the following requirements are met:
- Make sure polling hardware health statistics is enabled.
- For Cisco devices, make sure that the correct MIB is selected.
- Make sure the correct sensors are enabled for the nodes.
