Server monitoring tools

Is there any tools that can manage the healthiness of the server, especailly on the RAID disk ?

Can we use powershell to get those information ? Any free tools will be appreciated ?

If you're using a server from a major manufacturer like Dell or HP, they have software included that can monitor the RAID condition and notify via e-mail and other alerting mechanism.

For Dell, I believe it's still called Open Manage Array Manager.

if you are using dell servers then Dell Open Manage Essentials (it's Free) is the best for centralized monitoring......

i think it should works with other servers as well... i tried only on dell...


or else dell server administrator is comes along with dell server DVD... which you can configure to send critical logs to your e-mail...

or else you can monitor servers using PRTG which comes 100 sensors free of cost... here us can monitor processors, HDD, Bandwidth, Network, RAM, etc.  it supports all server models and all network devices ..

if you are using any other servers you can check with manufacturers sites ...as well...

if you are using Dell Open Manage then see the following images where you can make settings of SMTP server... paralelly if you want to use snmp which is the configuration part of Dell Open manage essentials as well as PRTG .

all the best
