[Nagiosplug-help] Plugin for hardware raid status

Hi Daniel,

I don't know about your specific RAID Card, but I'm successfully monitoring
3ware and Adaptec RAID cards using Nagios.
First thing is to find the CLI (command line) tool used to interact with the
Adapter. For 3ware, this is called tw_cli. For Adaptec it's called arcconf.
These tools are located on the respective manufacturers websites or install
Once you have the CLI tools installed and know how to use them, you can
either build your own nagios check/plugin around it, or find something
almost ready for you here:

I'm using the check_tw_cli and check_icp plugins from that site, and with
minimal modifications, I'm successfully monitoring the RAID containers.
These plugins don't tell me which disk is having problems, but I'm notified
if the RAID container goes into degraded or another type of mode, and then I
can follow up and investigate further.

Hope this helps!
