I want to monitor HP servers with ESXi 5 with HP SIM 7. I have installed the offline bundle on the ESXi 5 boxes and discovered them in HP SIM.
I found that there are a lot of softwares that can handle that but I don't know which one to use : HP SIM, Insight Control, Insight Management, etc
All I want to do is to monitor the servers about memory, CPU, temperature, fan, power, etc. issues and get email messages when something happens. I would also like to be able to manage hardware directly in vCenter server.

I would say it's quite simple, if you already have installed the offline management bundle and discovered in SIM, your up and running and monitoring your server - if the health status is green and good.
If you want to be alerted by email you have to configure an automatic event handling task - but I hope you know how to do that, that's pretty fundamental SIM knowledge.

I'm having a similar issue where I have 5 ESXi 5 hosts, have them licensed, discovered, but I can't register them with the VMM module. It says they are offline but I can ping the hosts. HP SIM is talking to them but can't pull power & performance data.
