Temperature Status (VMware) service

The Temperature Status (VMware) service monitors the status and temperature readings of temperature sensors on ESXi servers.

SolarWinds N-central uses the Common Information Model (CIM) services and ports for monitoring.

If your ESX/ESXi server is operating on either Dell or HP hardware, it is strongly recommended that you install the Dell or HP Offline Bundle before the Windows probe discovers the ESX/ESXi server.

Service Type ESXi
Instances on a Device 100
Supported Systems/Applications

ESX or ESXi 4.x, 5.x and later

ESXi 3.5 is not supported.

Device Class Server - ESXi
Monitored By Windows probes

Temperature Sensor Name The unique identifier of the monitored temperature sensor.

This service cannot use Self Healing.

To access information about the temperature sensors on your ESXi server, use a browser to access the following URL:

Note that the Managed Object Browser (MOB) by default may be disabled and you may need to enable this feature.
