The license for PATROL for Converged Infrastructure includes the right to use Hardware Sentry KM, so, from a licensing point of view, it's the same.
For a technical point of view, Hardware Sentry KM covers the hardware aspects of the entire UCS platform. But it does so also for non-UCS platforms, allowing a consistent monitoring of hardware aspects of any type of servers, which is A Good Thing(tm).
Frankly, I don't know what BMC's Cisco UCS KM does exactly. Not sure it's still actively maintained.

Go for Sentry Product for Cisco UCS Monitoring, Its pretty straight forward and works really well. All new enhanced features are available with this KM.
Patrol for Converged Infrastructure was developed far back, I don't see any update coming after 2014.
Recently used Sentry for HW Monitoring which works perfectly for CISCO UCS. You need to understand how the UCS System is managed and then implement the solution. Documents are also available for Cisco UCS. Remotely you can monitor all CISCO UCS Systems using this solution.
