    Default Zimbra SNMP and HP Proliant Support Packs

    We'd like to enhance the hardware monitoring of our HP Zimbra server (4.5.5 NE on SuSE ES9) by installing the HP Proliant Support Pack ("PSP").

    By replacing some of the SuSE-supplied drivers and kernel modules with HP versions, enhanced monitoring of hardware devices like hard disks, array controllers, NICs, etc. is made possible.

    Much of the monitoring however utilizes SNMP, and we don't want this to conflict with Zimbra's SNMP.

    Anyone have any experience with PSPs and Zimbra? Or with utilizing other SNMP-based packages on a Zimbra server?

    Thanks!

    I have added net-snmp to all my Zimbra servers (from RPM, standard setup on its standard port) and I'm monitoring CPU, RAM, HD and more with cacti.

    No problem at all...

    Awesome, thanks!

    Did you change the zimbra community string, and if so, did the change "stick" between version upgrades?

    All the best,

    The Zimbra SNMP uses port 162, standard SNMP uses 161 - no conflict. I also have the SNMP daemon running on my Zimbra server and monitor it with Cacti.

    Zimbra uses swatch to send syslog info as traps on 162. sending traps is different from polling with a tool like CR, openview, netblue, etc.
