Is there any how-to's or best practices on how to monitor and alert on hardware failures on HP Proliant hardware as diskbays, fans, cpus etc?

Hi Claus,

Likely the best way to monitor your HP Proliant gear is via SNMP. From what I can tell there are MIB files available for most proliant hardware. You'll need to configure your proliant hosts to serve the information you're after via SNMP, but once it's available you can employ the up.time SNMP monitor to watch for signs of failing hardware.

Might there be a way to hook the monitor into Insight Manager? Alternatively could the MIBs from InsightManager be used as the basis for the Uptime monitoring?

You should be able to load the MIB from Insight Manager into up.time's SNMP service monitor; there's no restrictions on which MIBs can be used. Aside from that or creating a custom script to poll/scrape Insight Manager, up.time does not have an out-of-the-box method to integrate with Insight Manager.
