Oracle/Sun Solaris - Environment (ALOM-CMT snapshot)

Connector file name: MS_HW_SunScSnapshot.hdf

This connector is superseded by:

This connector supersedes:

Description

Gives environmental and disk information (temperatures, fans, etc.) on Sun SPARC T1/T2 servers equipped with an ALOM card. Gathers the hardware information from the ALOM card in-band (no SSH connection over the network). Requires the SUNWexplo (Sun Explorer) package.

Target

Typical platform: Oracle/Sun

Operating system: Oracle Solaris

Prerequisites

Relies on: Sun Explorer and the ALOM-CMT card

Technology and protocols: System Commands

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

  • /opt/SUNWexplo/bin/snapshot

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 patrol account:

patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /opt/SUNWexplo/bin/snapshot
