With IPHost Network Monitor you can run simple snmp requests against a HP device in your network.
hp Ent Physical Name
The textual name of the physical entity. The value of this object should be the name of the component as assigned by the local device and should be suitable for use in commands entered at the device's `console'. This might be a text name, such as `console' or a simple component number (e.g. port or module number), such as `1', depending on the physical component naming syntax of the device. If there is no local name, or this object is otherwise not applicable, then this object contains a zero-length string. Note that the value of hpEntPhysicalName for two physical entities will be the same in the event that the console interface does not distinguish between them, e.g., slot-1 and the card in slot-1.
