I am trying to setup SNMP monitoring on a remote VMWare 5.5 server.
I have a remote VMWare server on which I would like to monitor disk, fan, power supplies suing SNMP. I have enabled SNMP on the server and I can do a snmpwalk and see all of the OIDs. I have looked on VMWare's website for information on setting up SNMP monitoring and downloaded the MIB files.
I am having a problem determining what OIDs I should be polling to monitor storage. The server is setup with direct attached storage in a RAID array. Has anyone else set this up? Can you explain how I identify drives, storage pools etc. All I need is to know is when there is a problem with a drive. If I can get just get that a drive has a problem I can go onsite and identify it and get it replaced before another drive fails and bring the server down.
