We have setup an ESX v3.5 farm recently and are fairly new to this and especially linux.

However picking up bits and pieces along the way.

I need a way to monitor the hardware health (especially disks) of the HP Proliant DL380/360's we have running this software.

I loaded up HP Insight Manager to a VM and have been testing with this but having quite a few problems and see that i infact need some kind of ESX agent.

I am now reading that there a lot of problems with the HP agents running on ESX hosts (especially the storage option) causing ASR's.

Can anyone recommend something to monitor the hardware?

Also what exactly does the SU -L command do?
