Microsofts SNMP agent will NOT provide you with everything you need.

We use Insight manager and Dell OpenManage here and both provide good
hardware agents. We have not yet implemented the agent functionality you are
looking at, but I do know the NT agent is not enough.

Subject: [NV-L] Compaq Insight Managment Agents

I was wondering if anyone has any insight (play on words) on the necessity
of compaq insight management agents.  We are currenly in the planning stage
of rolling about 250 citrix boxes (compaq hardware - Terminal Server 4 Svc.
Pk 5) into the Netview monitoring realm.  All the research I have found, to
get access to the compaq proprietary mibs, requires the various agents
(Foundation, Storage, Nic ....).  A co-worker insists that to do extensive
hardware monitoring (disk status, memory, fan....), Microsofts SNMP service
would suffice as stand alone.  Unfortunately, we haven't acquired a test
box, but the process must begin soon in order to get the Microsoft SNMP
service installed as well as the agents (if necessary) given the time it
takes to get this done.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
