Monitoring Solaris Servers


Hello fellow Solaris Admins, I had a question in regards to monitoring Solaris machines. We just upgraded our datacenter from Enterprise 420R's to M4000's and a single E4900. I was wondering if any Solaris administrators out there have methods of monitoring hardware health such as CPU's memory DIMM etc. We are using scripts to basically email us daily the /var/adm/messages file but I think its a waste of email. We also use Nagios to check the host health such as Disk Space etc. But I am looking for a tool to monitor hardware health and shoot off emails when a component fails. We just had a CPU fail on the E4900 and did not realize it until we actually inspected the machine and saw the infamous amber wrench light. Do many Solaris administrators use custom scripts to parse prtdiag? etc.?

Thank you for the help.

Brian are you referring to the Sun Explorer package? Is this the tool support always recommends installing to get a explorer dump to send off to them when a system crashes?
