hardware monitoring

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – In AIX we use the errpt command to monitory the status of hardware. disk,cpu , power supplies, fans, memory etc. I know syslogd and /vat/log messages has some information. I was thinking I might need to write a script to trap or words like error, failure etc. Is there an easier way to do this? is there a build in facility already that I just dont seem to be finding? i should add I want this for physical and vm systems. Thanx in advance for the info. (HowTos)
