Hitachi Chassis LED Test

If multiple virtualization platforms are combined in a single chassis of the Hitachi Compute Blade and are configured to share the same physical resources, then it is the onus of the administrators to keep a constant vigil on the chassis! For easy identification of problem scenarios, the chassis is provided with the following LEDs:

  • Power LED
  • Alarm LED
  • Attention LED
  • Location identify LED

If the LEDs fail or if the LEDs are damaged, then, administrators may be deprived of identifying the problems that occur on the chassis. To avoid this issue, it is necessary to figure out the fauly LEDs and replace them at the earliest. The Hitachi Chassis LED test aids administrators in this exercise by constantly keeping a vigil on the status of the LEDs and the color of the LEDs.

This test reports the current status and color of each LED available in the server chassis.

Target of the test : Hitachi Compute Blade

Agent deploying the test : An external agent

Outputs of the test : One set of results for each LED in the chassis being monitored.
