Dell monitoring: Premium monitoring for hardware, hard disks, and servers
Hardware and servers must be monitored constantly if they are to work at full capacity. Downtime can have negative long-term consequences for the company, and in the case of server crashes, can even lead to a drop in sales and a tarnished corporate reputation. By using a professional monitoring system with sensors made especially for Dell hardware and PowerEdge servers, you can anticipate downtime before it happens. Our goal is to ensure the continuity of your IT operations.
PRTG lets you keep an eye on your Dell hardware, provides an overview of your network, and warns you when your storage area network (SAN) memory is low. You’ll also lay the foundations for the affordable acquisition of new hardware. PRTG not only helps you to react to problems quickly, but also to make more qualified decisions on your future IT architecture.
Thanks to PRTG, everyone will work with peace of mind.
The data monitored by PRTG Dell sensors
How PRTG defines sensors
In PRTG, “sensors” are the basic monitoring elements. One sensor usually monitors one measured value in your network, e.g. the traffic of a switch port, the CPU load of a server, the free space of a disk drive. On average you need about 5-10 sensors per device or one sensor per switch port.
SNMP Dell Hardware Sensor
- Data regarding system management software
- Data regarding the system status
- Information on Chassis and BIOS
- Various hardware parameters
SNMP Dell PowerEdge Physical Disk Sensor
- Hard disk status
- Rollup status
- Component status
- Warning messages related
to “Self-Monitoring, Analysis,
and Reporting Technology”
SNMP Dell PowerEdge System Health Sensor
- Overall system
- Power supply
- Cooling system
- Storage device

How Dell monitoring with PRTG works
Dell sensors are based on SNMP technology, which controls data packet structuring and communication. Using the Simple Network Monitoring Protocol, network devices can be managed and monitored from one central station. The result is a straightforward, resource-friendly monitoring process.
PRTG offers sensors for the system health and hard drives of a PowerEdge server, as well as a sensor for Dell hardware. For server sensors, you must first install the Dell OpenManage Server Administrator, and once inside, activate SNMP. As an alternative, you can also run your monitoring via the integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC), provided the latter is version 7 or higher.
