Monitor hardware's status with Zabbix

Dear Experts, is there any way to monitor the Hardware's status (status of array, of disk, temporature, ....) of a IBM or HP servers?

We are using Zabbix 3.4. Many thanks!

Hello Sam, I knew Zabbix can monitor those in level of OS, but what I am asking is the level of Hardware. For example:

- the temperature of server

- the status of RAID

- the LED status of hard disks

IBM and HP have some IPMI-Interfaces - Management of the server. These Interfaces can be monitored by zabbix too (search for HP ILo or IBM IPMI). The Baseboard Management Controller should deliver required Information.
