# Cisco UCS-C Series

Overview

This package aims at monitoring Cisco UCS-C series servers using SNMP.

Description

This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to monitor Cisco UCS-C series servers based on an SNMP collection. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Global System Information (CPU, Memory)
  • Storage health and performance (Disks, Luns,Raid Batteries)
  • Chassis health and performance (Boards, Fans, Power Supplies, Rack Units)

Requirements

  • SNMP Service must be configured (Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set) and started on the targeted machine.

  • Network Flows - It is necessary to ensure network connectivity between ServicePilot and the monitored device. In case of a network infrastructure with a firewall, all of the following flows must be opened:

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and Cisco UCS
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between Cisco UCS and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5

Installation

Before adding a resource to monitor, make certain that all pre-requisites are in place and if a ServicePilot Agent is required, that it is communicating correctly with the ServicePilot Manager.
