hot server shutdown solution.
I hope everyone had a nice holiday, I know I did, I even got married. :)
Now I'm back though I need to know if anyone knows of a solution to shut down multiple servers if my new aircon in the server room dies. I friend over the road has a system that contacts you, but I need something that will kill the servers if the room temp gets above 40C as I reckon time to meltdown will be under 10 minutes from failure.
Oh and as always cost is very much an issue.
Try OpManager free edition
Have you had a look at OpManager Free Edition? (ManageEngine OpManager - Free Small Network Edition & Professional Trial Edition Feature Comparison)
This lets you monitor upto 10 devices, with HP Servers it has builtin SNMP details for temperature, when things reach a critical point you can schedule emails and running of scripts. Uisng this I've been able to ask remote sites to check aircon when it's failed before things have gone too far since my crack-berry has alterted me to problems.
