ardserverroomprobe

kalshagar - ardServerRoomProbe

Purpose

ardServerRoomProbe or ASRP has for purpose:
  • Provide the INFRA team engineers with informations related to the server room status (not the servers themselves, they already have this)
  • Provide the following info:
    • Current and historical temperature (use 2~3%20 temp probes) - 3 probes %20 average
    • Current and historical humidity - drop, too annoying
  • Information should be made available :
    • Database (on the server piloting the ASRP) [HIGH] - drop it, the Nagios takes care.
    • SNMP [MED] - done!
    • Web interface [MED] - drop, Nagios job
    • Mail on alert [HIGH] - drop, Nagios job
Inspiration can be taken from http://www.industrialethernet.com/sp8.html

Tadaaaa ♪ The boxed version, bling-bling flavor. 3 probes, total less than 40 Euro.

SNMP Agent

See here SNMP agent in C#. I won't disclose the real version of the software, but I can show the tests we made before moving to the real job.

Arduino probing code

It has 3 sensors (pin analog 0 to 2) plus a blink led on digital 12.
It polls all the sensors every 3 seconds, store the SENSOR_AVERAGE latest results in an array and return the average per sensor. Up to the tests I've done now, it's quite nice results...
