How it works

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector is a monitoring solution that discovers almost any hardware platform, collects health and performance metrics, and exposes the data in any OpenTelemetry-compatible platform (Prometheus, AWS, BMC Helix, Datadog, New Relic, Splunk, etc.). Additionally, it is the only pure-software solution to monitor sustainable IT-related data and provide a clear view of the power consumption of hardware in your data center, current and projected annual electricity costs, and carbon emissions for your devices.

Benefit from the monitoring power of Hardware Sentry

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector benefits from the data collection expertise of Hardware Sentry to expose collected metric data in any OpenTelemetry-compatible platform.

For almost two decades, Hardware Sentry has been used by thousands of organizations to discover and monitor any type of devices – physical, virtual, and blade servers, SAN switches, tape libraries, etc. Hardware Sentry collects valuable health-related metrics, power consumption, electricity costs and CO₂ emissions to help you rapidly detect and resolve IT problems before they impact critical systems.

Visualize hardware metrics in easily readable pre-built Grafana dashboards

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector provides pre-built Grafana dashboards to visualize collected hardware metrics in an easy-to-read environment.

Expose collected metrics in standard Prometheus format

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector collects hardware data from non-Prometheus systems and exposes collected metrics in the standard Prometheus format for direct visualization or integration into Grafana's embedded dashboards. Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector can be configured in minutes and does not require any specific additional scripting.

Rely on actual data to implement or consolidate your sustainable IT policies

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector measures the power consumption of any server, any network switch, or any storage system in your data center. The solution automatically reports on the carbon footprint of virtual machines, applications and services and helps you optimize your facility's ambient temperature to reduce cooling costs.

250+ connectors

Cover all possible hardware instrumentation layers available on the market

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector relies on over 250 connectors gathered in an embedded library. Each connector contains technical instructions and discovery knowledge to support a specific piece of hardware equipment – physical, virtual, and blade servers, disk arrays, fiber switches, and tape libraries. The Hardware Connector Library is free to use and regularly updated and improved.

You can configure Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector to scrape thousands of targets in your environment.
