Enable hardware health monitoring

When you add nodes using Network Sonar Discovery, the hardware health sensors are enabled for devices that support hardware health monitoring automatically.

When adding individual nodes with the Add Node wizard, you can enable or disable hardware health monitoring in the wizard.

To verify that hardware health statistics are being collected, list monitored resources for the node and ensure that hardware health monitoring is enabled.

Enable monitoring from the Add Node wizard

When selecting resources for monitoring a node in the Add Node wizard, select the Hardware Health Sensors box to enable hardware health monitoring.
