Abstract

In a customer environment, a heterogeneous selection of server models may be employed to meet the customer's requirements. Each model contains different components and is therefore subject to different types of hardware failures. As such, each model maintains a different scheme of Light Path Diagnostics LEDs. In this environment it is necessary for the system administrator to monitor the state of Light Path Diagnostics for each individual system and comprehend the various Light Path Diagnostics schemes. This article describes a method for aggregating Light Path Diagnostics status across multiple heterogeneous servers.
