    Hello:

    What is (if any) the best way to monitor hardware components on standalone ESXi host?

    Thanks

    Major server vendors offer CIM providers for their hardware and also monitoring tools. For example HP offers a so called Offline bundle with the CIM providers for the different versions of ESXi and HP-SIM (a Windows application) as a monitoring tool.

    Veeam monitor can monitor some hardware but it will depend on what hardware is visible from the vSphere Client Configuration Tab / Hardware

    The script option is really good, but I want to get alert notification in real time, but not at specific time or in some interval.

    Is it possible?

    Thanks a lot!

    Just schedule the script to be run periodically, every hour or even every 15 minutes if necessary.
