VMWare ESX Host Systems: Hardware Sensors

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: vSphere

This check checks the state of all of a VMWare ESX host system's hardware sensors - including temperatures, fans, power supplies, memory DIMMS, hard disk, an others. In order to avoid network traffic the agent sends only information about sensors that are not in green state.

Note: Due to a caching problem on the ESX host system side, this check occasionally reports incorrect sensor data. This may mean that the sensor appears to be stuck in an unhealthy state. You can find more information here: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?cmd=displayKC&externalId=1037330


One service is created for each ESX Host System.
