HP ML350 G5 Server Email Alert Monitoring

Hello Experts,

I have an HP ML350 G5 Server, and I'm not seeing any options for entering an e-mail address, to receive critical alerts for the integrated RAID controller card, or really any of the HP server's subsystems for that matter.  Is there an HP software solution that you know of that's compatible with the ML350 server, which will have those sorts of features integrated?

If there isn't anything, which can e-mail out when it encounters a hardware issue, can you recommend a free third party product that will actively monitor the server and shoot off e-mail alerts if it encounters issues with the server's hardware?

Thanks

I'm familiar with spiceworks (but it doesn't monitor hardware, right?), not a linux admin or nagios user...  Would prefer first to see if there is an HP application that will work with this specific model, that has integrated hardware monitoring with e-mail alerting capability.  Setting up custom monitoring is a last resort, as it'll require a longer time commitment.  

My primary focus is to get info, warning & critical email alerts for the Smart Array E200I SAS RAID card.  Secondly, any fans that might fail, or if the temperature reaches a certain threshold, that sort of thing.

Depending on the OS, HP offers System Management sw.
In Windows there is a component called , Event Notifier.it would report on HW issues, i.e. controller battery, power supply via email (SMTP).

HP event Manager will do it. It is on the non bootable cd that came with the server or you can download it from HP
