Integrating Hardware Sentry with Prometheus & Grafana

Observing hardware and sustainability critical information across your entire IT infrastructure in one place.

Prometheus is an open-source monitoring system and time-series database that monitors and collect event data in your IT infrastructure.

Grafana is an open-source visualization and analytics software that exposes time-series data into graphs and visualizations.

Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry Collector integrates seamlessly with Prometheus and Grafana to translate time-series metrics into an easily readable picture of your environment.

How it works

Integrate Hardware Sentry OpenTelemetry with Prometheus and Grafana to expose hardware health, performance, and sustainability metrics to Prometheus Server and turn observability data into actionable alerts in Grafana to help on-call responders resolve issues quickly.

Key Features

hardware monitoring

Hardware Sentry detects and even predicts failures in processors, memory modules, disks, network cards, controllers, power supplies, fans, temperature sensors, etc.

it energy usage reports

No smart PDUs required: Hardware Sentry is a pure-software solution capable of reporting the power consumption of all monitored systems, even those which are not equipped with power sensors.

CO₂ emissions reports

Hardware Sentry combines the energy usage of each monitored systems with the electricity cost and carbon density provided to produce accurate CO₂ emissions reports for your different sites.

data center temperature optimization

Hardware Sentry analyses the temperature of your different hosts to recommend an ambient temperature optimum for your server rooms and estimates the amount saved when this recommendation is followed.
