Blade Memory Arrays Test

This test monitors the temperature of each of the memory arrays of the blade servers loaded in a chassis, and reports any abnormal increase in temperature.

Target of the test : A Cisco UCS manager

Agent deploying the test : A remote agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each memory array of every blade server loaded in each chassis managed by the Cisco UCS manager being monitored.

Configurable parameters for the test
Parameter Description

Test Period

How often should the test be executed.


The IP address of the host for which the test is being configured.


The variable name of the port at which the specified host listens.

UCS User and
UCS Password

Provide the credentials of a user with at least read-only privileges to the target Cisco UCS manager.

Confirm Password

Confirm the password by retyping it here.


By default, the Cisco UCS manager is SSL-enabled. Accordingly, the SSL flag is set to Yes by default.

Web Port

By default, in most virtualized environments, Cisco UCS manager listens on port 80 (if not SSL-enabeld) or on port 443 (if SSL-enabled) only. This implies that while monitoring Cisco UCS manager, the eG agent, by default, connects to port 80 or 443, depending upon the SSL-enabled status of Cisco UCS manager - i.e., if Cisco UCS manager is not SSL-enabled (i.e., if the SSL flag above is set to No), then the eG agent connects to Cisco UCS manager using port 80 by default, and if Cisco UCS manager is SSL-enabled (i.e., if the SSL flag is set to Yes), then the agent-Cisco UCS manager communication occurs via port 443 by default. Accordingly, the WebPort parameter is set to default by default.

In some environments however, the default ports 80 or 443 might not apply. In such a case, against the WebPort parameter, you can specify the exact port at which the Cisco UCS manager in your environment listens, so that the eG agent communicates with that port for collecting metrics from the Cisco UCS manager.

Measurements made by the test
Measurement Description Measurement Unit Interpretation

Array temperature

Indicates the current temperature of the memory array present in this blade server.


A very high temperature could indicate that the memory array is overheated.
