HP-ILO Server technology integration

ServicePilot server-hp-ilo

# HP Integrated Lights-Out Controller (iLO)


This package is designed to monitor an HP Integrated Lights-Out Controller using SNMP.


This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the HP iLO on which the SNMP service has been installed and configured. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • System Health
  • Server Uptime

The HP iLO package supports all distribution which allow access to the CPQSINFO, CPQHLTH and CPQIDA MIBs. HP iLO 4 may respond to SNMP requests without SNMP Agents installed on the server OS if configured to handle SNMP requests itself. Otherwise AMS or Insight Agents will need to be installed on the HP server.


  • SNMP service must be installed, configured and started on the targeted iLO (Security: read-only SNMP community and allowed host must be set).

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

    • UDP/161 (SNMP): Between ServicePilot Manager and iLO
    • ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and iLO
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between your iLO and ServicePilot Agent
  • ServicePilot Requirements

    • ServicePilot Manager minimum version: 8.5


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.
