Reporting: Enhanced Hardware Information
Add granular and detailed reporting graphs showing details like:
CPU usage per core
CPU usage by processes(iowait, interrupts, useful for determining HW problems or poor performance)
RAM per process
Heat/Cooling/Power(RPMs, temps, voltages)
UPS status(Vbatt, Vout, Vin, etc)
all of this can be implemented using Munin with some tweaking
Definitely needed. I am a home user who recently discovered sophos and I absolutely love it! But was a bit surprised when I realized that I had no info regarding temps and hard disk.
For a software that uses the web interface for everything ( I mean. you have to first use the webui in order to access the console), I find it really poor to must login via ssh to run smartcrl or sensors.
These stuff should be in the webui.
This morning we got an error from a customer we couldn't resolve remotely. When an engineer came tot the office of the customer he was able to fry an egg on the SG125. Airco stalled. We could have known this a couple of day's earlier. Come on Sophos! Please add it!
I've seen that this feature request was opened in 2009... How much votes do they need for implementation? Think this is a very important feature. Every Server has its own monitoring for hard disks, temperature, fan speeds and so on, so it would be very useful if you were able to monitore those hardware parameters for the firewall too... we should work proactive not reactive ;)
Twice now I could have used SMART status.
I think it's very important that any device critical to keeping servers and workstations online be kept in good shape and in a safe environment. That means early detection of possible hardware failure would be an excellent feature! If the hardware is unable to cool itself (motherboard or CPU temperature, fan status) or there are power problems (frequent battery usage or other UPS status), that's important to know. It would be nice if the UTM provided that information and could send notifications.

This should be a standard feature on all device GUI's and that even means Sophos, Cisco, Juniper, and etc. "Heat/Cooling(RPMs, temps)" at the very least.
The Balmasque commented
This would be a gorgeous feature to add.
Shawn Thompson commented
Please add temperature/hardware sensor data to the dashboard. I would have been able to catch the overheating CPU problem I had with my UTM before it fried due to the CPU fan RPM being too low (by fan design, stupid Intel stock fans).
it's baffling that not even the HW Sophos units have ANY kind of monitoring/alert in webadmin, one would think that being branded units they would have a better integration than just a static image on the GUI
yes please, temp view on the GUI
Ein Stein commented
Yes please! We need temp sensors at the very least!
This is sitll missing even on the appliances and it's not a minor issue either as a failed fan or overheat will cause severe problems
Ian Morehouse commented
Just updating this for a reminder that it is still needed.
yes we need temperature sensors atleast but not just lm-sensors but some proper monitor like cpu/ram in dashboard.
sensord is still missing, there's no easy way to set up alarm beeps and emails without it.
SNMP isn't enough if you want temperature, fan status, etc...
the lm_sensors modules and utilities need to be installed. It looks like much of this is installed in v9 now, and just needs to be configured.
seems to get things going. now we just need it in SNMP and email alerts if something goes haywire.
Dennis Meyer commented
probably it would be enough to deliver correct snmp plugins for munin.
A paying customer with a 425 appliance had a failed fan, causing random system crashes.
ISTM that if temperature (and/or fan) monitoring had been implemented, this would have been easier to resolve.
I want it for ALL systems, not just appliances, btw.

Just had to go onsite to service system with failed hard disk, Add SMART monitor
IO would be very nice indeed.
