There are a few options for pulling this information depending on which products you own. In either case, yes, you will need the HP Insight Manager software installed on the servers you're trying to pull this information from.
The next version of APM will pull this information out of the box, see this post for more details;

If you want to use NPM, you'll need to leverage the Universial Device Poller. There is a great resouce in the content exchange that you can use to save on time. Check here;

Hope this helps.
Thank you for your help and your reply.
- So, when I want to monitor the hardware elements of a HP Proliant Server with Linux OS installed on it, I have to install always, first the HP Insight Manager for Linux, right ?
Sorry, for asking it again but just for confirmation :).
- When I have to monitor servers with Linux on Dell I have to install the corresponding Dell agents first, right ?
Also another question:
- The OID of MIB, for example for HDD Status is the same for Linux OS and Windows OS, for a HP Proliant Server ?
If you will use APM for HW elements monitoring then you have to install those "hw managers" on server's side. APM then use SNMP or WMI polling and ask for a data provided by Server's applications.
Regarding the OIDs, the answer is yes, there are the same for different operation system.
