Dell EMC OpenManage Plug-in for Nagios Core
This is a Nagios Core Plug-In officially developed and supported by Dell EMC that provides capabilities to monitor 12th and later generations of Dell EMC PowerEdge servers through an Agent-free (out-of-band) method using Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller as well as Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (VxRail, Nutanix XC-Series), Modular Infrastructure (M1000e, VRTX, FX2/FX2s), Storage (Compellent SC-Series, Equal Logic PS-Series, PowerVault MD-Series) and Networking (Blade I/O, C, S, N, and Z-Series) devices

Overview

Dell EMC OpenManage™ Plug-in for Nagios Core provides capabilities for monitoring 12th and later generations of Dell PowerEdge Servers through an Agent-Free method (i.e. no OMSA agent required to be running on PowerEdge servers) using Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC) with Lifecycle Controller (LC), Hyper-Converged Infrastructure Platforms (VxRail, Nutanix XC-Series), Dell EMC Modular Infrastructure (M1000e, VRTX, FX2/FX2s), Dell EMC Storage (Compellent SC-Series, EqualLogic PS-Series, PowerVault MD-Series) and Dell EMC Networking (M-IOA/MXL, FN-IOM/FN-IOA, C-Series, S-Series, N-Series, Z-Series) devices directly from within the Nagios Core console. With this plug-in, customers have comprehensive hardware-level visibility of PowerEdge Servers, Modular Infrastructure, Storage and Networking devices including overall and component-level health monitoring for quicker fault detection and resolution.
