When something goes wrong with a system, diagnostic tools can help you to determine what caused the problem. However, this approach is inherently reactive. It means waiting until a component fails. Oracle ILOM provides diagnostic tools that allow you to be more proactive by monitoring the system while it is still “healthy.” Monitoring tools give you early warning of imminent failure, thereby allowing planned maintenance and better system availability. Remote monitoring is also a convenient way to check the status of many machines from one centralized location.
Using Oracle ILOM, you can view detailed information about the overall health of a system and the status of system components. In addition, you can monitor open problems and close fault status. Oracle ILOM also provides access to informational system management log files.
