# HP Comware Switch


This package is designed to monitor a HP Comware switch using SNMP.


This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to monitor HP Comware switch based on an SNMP collection. The statistics gathered in this way include:

  • Network: Ping Response Time and Interfaces activity
  • System: CPU, Memory and Temperature
  • Stack Members: Status, Role, CPU, Memory and Temperature
  • Environment: Power Supply and Fan sensors


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

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 network-hp-comware-switch 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.

Key field notes

In the Monitoring Policies tab, specify the policy or policies to apply to the resource

  1. Basic Parameters tab:

    1. IP address/FQDN: Specify the IP address of the HP Comware, as resolvable by the machine on which ServicePilot Manager is running
  2. Interfaces tab:

    1. Auto-Discover Interfaces: tick to automatically discover interfaces
    2. Use Interface filter instead of Addressing Information: tick to get statistics for a specified list on interfaces only
    3. {Optional} Ignored Interfaces names separated with '|': Specify name(s) of interface(s) NOT to be monitored
    4. {Optional} Allowed Interfaces names separated with '|': Specify name(s) of interface(s) to be monitored

      Note: Each element of the interface lists is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)

  3. Monitoring Options tab:

    1. ICMP Ping: tick to get Ping status.
    2. Stack Members: tick to get switch stack information for stacked switches.
    3. Fans: tick to get statistics for all fans.
    4. Power Supplies: tick to get statistics for all power supplies.
