Systems Insight Manager integration
Systems Insight Manager overview
Use HP Systems Insight Manager to:
Discover iPDUs. As part of the discovery process, HP SIM can detect an installed iPDU. The web
interface for the discovered iPDU can be launched from the HP SIM All Systems page.
Receive SNMP traps from the iPDU. The iPDU can send event-based traps to HP SIM that include a
URL in the trap. This functionality enables administrators to easily launch the web interface of the
iPDU in context. For example, if the iPDU detects an alarm condition, the iPDU can send a trap to HP
SIM with an attached hyperlink that routes users directly to the Overview screen for the attached
Conveniently launch the iPDU web interface from within HP SIM.
All Systems page—All discovered iPDUs appear on the All Systems page. Click the link in the
System Name column to launch a browser session.
Event-based trap—A URL is included in each trap to link directly from HP SIM to the Overview
screen for the specific device for which the trap was sent.
Discovering the iPDU
HP SIM automatically detects iPDUs as part of the device discovery process. If detected, a hyperlink is
included on the HP SIM All Systems page for the iPDU. The iPDU should be installed and running before
attempting discovery through HP SIM.
If the defaults are not used, a new entry can be made to the additionalwsdisc.props file, located in the
CONFIG directory in the HP SIM install directory, to allow HP SIM to correctly discover and identify the
iPDU. For more information on editing the additionalwsdisc.props file, see the additionalwsdisc.txt file
located in the same directory.
