The following figure identifies some of the major elements of the HP Management Packs 1.3 for MOM 2005 and the underlying elements used to collect data and process hardware events and state changes.
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 MOM 2005. If the HP event in the Windows® Event Log has an associated event processing rule defined by an HP Management Pack, a MOM alert is generated and written to the appropriate view in the MOM Operator Console.
HP alerts in MOM include clear event details and knowledge base 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.
See "Using the software" for information on the components provided with the HP Management Packs 1.3 for MOM 2005.
