HP-INSIGHT Server technology integration

ServicePilot server-hp-insight

# HP Insight Server


This package is designed to monitor an HP Insight Server using SNMP.


This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the HP Insight Server based on an SNMP collection. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • System: CPU and Memory utilization
  • Storage: Logical Disk utilization
  • Network: Interface status and utilization
  • Applicative: Process and Service status and resource consumption


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

  • 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 HP Insight Server
    • ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and HP Insight Server
    • UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between HP Insight Server 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.

Add resource using Views Configuration web interface

  1. As an administrative user of ServicePilot, open the ServicePilot web interface.
  2. Navigate to Administration. The Configuration > Views web page will open.
  3. Click on the view in which to place the new resource in the Views hierarchy on the left of the interface. The View editor section will show the existing view contents.
  4. From the Packages list on the right of the interface, click and drag the server-hp-insight package into the View editor and let go.
  5. The Resource properties dialog box will open to allow resource configuration.
  6. Click OK to close the Resource properties dialog box. Note that the dialog box will not close if required parameters are not set.
  7. Click Save to apply the new resource to ServicePilot configuration.
