Issue/Introduction

We currently are doing Resource monitoring ( utilization ) for CPU, Disk and Memory.

We are being asked if we can also do monitoring for hardware failures.

  • Disk failure
  • Memory failure

Is this type of hardware failure monitoring possible within CAPC/PM ?

Environment

Any version of CAPM

Resolution

We monitor based on whats in the SNMP MIBS. If there is a MIB object with a supported metric for hardware failure we can report against it
