The HP ProLiant server event processing rules rely on HP Insight
Management Agents and data written to the Windows® Event Log to
identify and process HP ProLiant hardware events.
When an HP Insight Management Agent generates an event, a
corresponding entry is written to the Windows® Event log, which is
the primary event data source used by Operations Manager 2007. If
the HP event in the Windows® Event Log has an associated event
processing rule defined by an HP ProLiant Server Management Pack,
an Operations Manager alert is generated and written to the
appropriate view in the Operations Manager Console.
HP alerts in Operations Manager include clear event details and
knowledge-based data designed to enable rapid analysis of real-time
and prefailure conditions. Certain hardware events reported to the
Windows® Event Log can also generate additional events that
indicate a change in hardware state.
