N-central Help

Power Supply (HP) service

The Power Supply (HP) service monitors the overall condition of the power supply for HP ProLiant servers.

Special Note

This service operates in conjunction with the vendor-supplied hardware agent and requires SNMP to be configured so that it is accessible from both the SolarWinds N-central Agent and the SolarWinds N-central Probe.

The following are the requirements in order to associate this service with a device:

  • The device must undergo discovery using a Probe-based asset scan.
  • You need to enable SNMP enabled on the device on the Properties tab of the device.
  • Once you enable SNMP for the device, you need to configure a community string. The default community string is public.
