About monitoring health

Hewlett Packard Enterprise recommends the following best practices to monitor the health of the resources in your environment.

General health monitoring steps

NOTE:

You can view health and alerts on all managed servers and some monitored servers. See the HPE OneView Support Matrix for more information on monitored server hardware.

Monitoring step

Related information

  1. Navigate to the Activity screen and filter activities, using the filtering options that work best for the situation.

    You can also start from the Dashboard screen to see alerts for specific resources.

  2. Navigate to a specific resource screen to view the specific activities for that resource.

    On the resource screen, verify the state of the resource instances through health status icons.

  3. Investigate each resource instance with a warning or error status.

  4. Expand critical and warning alerts to see their full descriptions, and click Event details to view additional information about one or more events that caused the alert.

  5. Follow the instructions in the recommended resolution (if any) or research the alert to correct the problem.
    NOTE:

    If an alert is Active and no action is required, you can clear the alert. If an alert is Locked, you cannot clear the alert without fixing the condition that caused it.

Enclosure health monitoring

The enclosure health includes the status of enclosure infrastructure, such as fans, power supplies, appliances, Onboard Administrator, or Frame Link Module. To check the current health status of an enclosure, navigate to Enclosures > General menu. For enclosures, a healthy state is Monitored or Managed.

The health of an enclosure does not include the status of contained resources, such as blades and interconnects.
