Should you install this patch?

Apply this patch if you are using Hardware Sentry to monitor an HP-UX server.

What does it fix?

This patch fixes an important issue with the previously published patch P1066, which caused the PATROL Agent to consumes too much processor time (up to 20% on average).

This new patch also includes the improvements brought by the P1066 patch described below.

This bundle of connectors improves the monitoring of all types of HP-UX servers:

- Adds support for a broader range of MP and GSP cards
- Fixes connection and disconnection issues with MP and GSP cards
- Fixes an issue where devices were wrongly reported as missing
- Fixes performance issues with disk monitoring
- Fixes processor discovery on some Itanium systems

How to install the patch?

Copy the following files in the $PATROL_HOME/lib/MS_HW_hdf directory on the managed server:
- MS_HW_HPiLO.hdf
- MS_HW_HPUX.hdf
- MS_HW_HPUXStm.hdf

Copy the following file in the $PATROL_HOME/lib/psl directory:
- MS_HW_collect.lib
- MS_HW_connectors.lib
- MS_HW_telnet.lib
- MS_HW_utils.lib

Reinitialize the PATROL Agent for the patch to take effect.

Warning: The KM stops working as soon as the *.lib files are copied in the $PATROL_HOME/lib/psl directory.
