Output example

Example of status of your iLO

  battery: {status: OK}
  bios_hardware: {status: OK}
  fans: {redundancy: Redundant, status: OK}
  memory: {status: OK}
  network: {status: Link Down},
  power_supplies: {redundancy: Redundant, status: OK}
  processor: {status: OK}
  storage: {status: Degraded}
  temperature: {status: OK}
  vrm: {status: Ok}
  drive: {status: Ok}

The returned output would be:

hpilo_battery{product_name="ProLiant DL360 Gen9",server_name="name.fqdn.domain"} 0.0
hpilo_storage{product_name="ProLiant DL360 Gen9",server_name="name.fqdn.domain"} 1.0

You can install exporter on the server directly or on separate machine. To run, you must have Python and pip installed.

To install with pip:

pip install -e $HPILO_EXPORTER_DIR

Then just:

hpilo-exporter [--address= --port=9416 --endpoint="/metrics"]

HPILO is also available on Pypi so it can be installed directly:

pip install hpilo-exporter


Prebuild images are available from the docker repository:


To build the image yourself

docker build --rm -t hpilo-exporter .

To run the container

docker run -p 9416:9416 hpilo-exporter:latest

You can then call the web server on the defined endpoint, /metrics by default.

curl ''

Passing argument to the docker run command

docker run -p 9416:9416 hpilo-exporter:latest --port 9416 --ilo_user my_user --ilo_password my_secret_password

Docker compose

Here is an example of Docker Compose deployment:

    image: my.registry/hpilo-exporter
      - 9416:9416
      - '--port=9416'
          - node.hostname == my_node.domain


A helm chart is available at prometheus-helm-addons.

  • the exporter is available on http://hpilo:9416
  • you use same the port,username and password for all your iLO
- job_name: 'hpilo'
  scrape_interval: 1m
    ilo_port: ['443']
    ilo_user: ['my_ilo_user']
    ilo_password: ['my_ilo_password']
    - targets:
      - ilo_fqdn.domain

    - source_labels: [__address__]
      target_label: __param_ilo_host
    - source_labels: [__param_ilo_host]
      target_label: ilo_host
    - target_label: __address__
