More Information

  • Support for Gen10 Servers and options.
  • System Management Assistant (SMA) makes it possible for SNMP information from the iLO to be routed via the Operating System to consuming applications. Communication interface is similar to AMS.
  • Monitor Smart Array and disks attached to it from the iLO directly.
  • Logical and Physical view of disk information for disks connected to Smart Array.
  • Monitoring of NVMe disks attached to enablement kits with the help of the Agentless Management Service.
  • Software Inventory with the help of the Agentless Management Service.

iLO Firmware and Optional HPE Agentless Management Service Monitoring Capabilities

The iLO firmware provides SNMP capabilities without need for an OS, thereby making it possible to monitor bare-metal servers, ideal for cloud environments where agents cannot be landed on tenant stacks. iLO supports the SNMP v3 protocol which is secure.

The optional HPE Agentless Management Service provides information that is OS specific.

The HPE Agentless Management Service is also needed to monitor low end devices such as Chipset attached SAS/SATA, these are usually devices that don't have the ability to communicate with peers such as the iLO and hence cannot be monitored by iLO directly

The HPE Agentless Management Service communicates with the iLO via the iLO CHIF driver over the PCIe bus. Since it does not communicate on the network, no network ports need to be open making the system less vulnerable to attacks.

The SNMP implementation uses the iLO CPU and memory thereby freeing up the resources that can be used by the application stack.

Additional Benefits

HPE Agentless Management offers a consistent Graphic User Interface (GUI) for configuration regardless of the host OS.

An intelligent asynchronous device, iLO, on the physical server providing a single network target to monitor and manage the device.

A well-documented and robust scripting toolkit based on industry-standard XML/RESTful API to deploy and configure many servers from a single configuration point such as HPE OneView, HPE SIM, HPE Insight Control.

The capability to segregate the management network from the data network using the dedicated iLO Network port for out-of-band communication, increased security and stability.

No need to install any software to manage communication across host LAN ports, or for you to enable management network protocol ports on the host OS.
