Using iLO, you can monitor the sever, including the following:

  • Set up SNMP monitoring under Administration > Management > SNMP Settings. For more details, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x8lP3tjcNqk or for SNMPv3, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSyk1pX8TZ8. You can also set up SNMP monitoring of the CTERA Edge Filer, described in Using SNMP Monitoring.
  • Set up email alerts under Administration > Management > Alert Mail. For more details, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N_gZ5eFZws4.
  • System information. Click System Information in the navigation pane to view the status of the server subsystems and devices, such as the status of the fans, power, storage, and temperature. For example, by selecting the Storage tab, you can check the status of all the SATA drives.
  • System diagnostics. Click Diagnostics in the navigation pane for server diagnostics.
