Oracle/Sun Solaris - Environment (prtdiag, lom)


Gives environmental information (temperatures, fans, etc.) on several Sun platforms through the prtdiag or lom utility

Connector ID: SunPrtdiag

This connector is superseded by:


Typical platform: Oracle/Sun

Operating system: Oracle Solaris


Leverages: Sun Solaris system commands (prtdiag, lom, etc.)

Technology and protocols: System Commands

This connector requires advanced privileges on the managed host for the command below:

  • /usr/sbin/lom

This connector therefore needs to run as root or you need to configure a privilege-escalation mechanism like sudo on the managed host to allow the monitoring account to run the command listed above.

Sample of /etc/sudoers to allow the above command to be run as root by the hwsagent account:

hwsagent ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/lom



hws HOSTNAME -t solaris -f SunPrtdiag --ssh -u USER --sudo-command-list /usr/sbin/lom


- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: solaris
  selectedConnectors: [ SunPrtdiag ] # Optional, to load only this connector
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt
    useSudo: true
    useSudoCommands: [ "/usr/sbin/lom" ]

Connector Activation Criteria

The Oracle/Sun Solaris - Environment (prtdiag, lom) connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all the below criteria are met:

  • Operating System is Oracle Solaris
  • The command below succeeds on the monitored host
    • Command: /bin/uname -m
    • Output contains: ^sun4u[s]?$ (regex)
  • The command below succeeds on the monitored host
    • Command: /bin/ls /usr/platform/`/bin/uname -i`/sbin/prtdiag
    • Output contains: ^/usr/platform/.*/sbin/prtdiag$ (regex)
