# HP-UX Server
This package is designed to monitor an HP-UX Server using SNMP.
This package automatically configures the ServicePilot Manager to collect statistics from the HP-UX Server based on an
SNMP collection. It is designed to monitor and troubleshoot HP-UX devices from one place. The statistics gathered in this way include:
CPU and Memoryutilization
Interfacestatus and utilization
Processstatus and resource consumption
SNMP service must be installed, configured and started on the targeted HP-UX 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-UX Server
- ICMP/Echo Request (Ping): Between ServicePilot Manager and HP-UX Server
- UDP/162 (SNMP Trap): (Optional) Between HP-UX Server and ServicePilot Agent
- 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
- As an administrative user of ServicePilot, open the ServicePilot web interface.
- Navigate to Administration. The Configuration > Views web page will open.
- 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.
- From the Packages list on the right of the interface, click and drag the server-hp-ux package into the View editor and let go.
- The Resource properties dialog box will open to allow resource configuration.
- Click OK to close the Resource properties dialog box. Note that the dialog box will not close if required parameters are not set.
- 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
Basic Parameters tab:
- IP address/FQDN: Specify the IP Address of the device
- Enable Process Monitoring: Tick to enable
- Process names to monitor separated with commas: Specify the file names of the processes to monitor
- Process aliases separated with commas: Specify a process name for each of the file names entered in the above field
- Auto-Discover Interfaces: Tick to enable auto-discovery
- Use Interface filter instead of Addressing Information: Tick to get statistics for a specified list on interfaces only
- Ignored Interfaces Name separated with '|': Specify a list of interfaces to be excluded from the monitoring. Each element of the process list is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)
- Allowed Interfaces Name separated with '|': Specify a list of interfaces to include in the monitoring. Each element of the process list is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)
Note: Each element of the ignored/allowed interface lists is a regular expression as defined by Like Operator (Visual Basic)
