VMware monitoring

Is there any tool that can monitor the disk healthiness of a VMware host ? Hope it can send out an alert email in case of any disk failure.

vCenter Server can monitor hardware and alert if this is a RAID failure, if you VMware ESXi server, recognises the storage controller in your ESXi Server. e.g. HP, IBM, Dell servers.

You could also try Solar Winds monitoring, Whats-Up Gold, or Veeam One.

Do I need to install anything on the ESi ? Where can I setup the alert email for the h/w problem ?

Nothing to install on ESXi.

But you would have to configure on the application used to monitor.

"you have to configure on the application used to monitor.:

Any example or screen dump to explain more ?
