N-central Help

Server Temp (Intel) service

The Server Temp (Intel) service monitors the status and temperature reading of the temperature sensors on Intel motherboards.

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.
Service Type SNMP
Instances on a Device 1
Supported Systems/Applications Devices using an Intel motherboard, with the Intel SMS software installed.
Device Class Server - Generic, Server - Windows
Monitored By Windows probes
Scan Interval 15 minutes
Baseboard Probe The name of the monitored baseboard temperature probe. You can obtain the names of temperature probes available for monitoring by querying the device with the 1.3.6.1.4.1.343.2.10.3.5.600.40.1.3 SNMP OID.
Panel Probe The name of the monitored panel temperature probe. You can obtain the names of temperature probes available for monitoring by querying the device with the 1.3.6.1.4.1.343.2.10.3.5.600.40.1.3 SNMP OID.
