HP Insight Diagnostics is a complete set of Intelligent Provisioning provided by HP through a variety of systematic and hardware tests, both offline and online. This software performs heavy tests on components such as processors, RAMs, hard drives, etc. in order to thoroughly examine the system. The program collects system configuration information and the ability to diagnose the health of HP server components using a variety of tests. In this article, we are going to examine the online testing of parts.

The HP Insight Diagnostics application simplifies the process of identifying the factors that cause a system problem. This application makes it possible to detect and separate these factors from hardware issues. Your access to this section allows you to take advantage of the following key benefits and features:

  • Ability to check the existing system configuration with different levels
  • Ability to test and diagnose hardware defects in the system
  • Ability to document system settings for standardization, crash recovery, server maintenance
  • Send configuration information to another location for deeper analysis
  • Integrated Management Log Management – IML

During the offline review and testing of the software, the operating system installed by the user is taken out of the circuit, so the software information is not reported by the system and it is enough to access it through the Intelligent Provisioning environment. This option can be used online using web-based applications. To activate various functions on the HP System Insight, specific HP License types would be required.
