Solar Winds have the ability to monitor hard components i.e. (HBA cards, DIMMs, Hard Drives, CPUs, etc. Can it be configured to monitor configured at the component level? Has any one done this? Yes is does hard drives and CPU, But what about DIMMS and HBA?
Those fall under what SW calls Hardware Health Monitoring, and generally speaking as long as you have the agent for your server type installed they can be monitored through the OS of your server. So for Dell the agent is openmanage, HP has Insight. For some of the less standard brands you can also add in the out of band management interface as a node and collect those metrics via SNMP.
