Ability to check HP Smart Arrays (hardware-raid)
Last modified: 2010-06-09 05:20:51 EDT
HP-util "hpacucli" can be used. Several plugins that interface to that util exist on nagios-exchange. "One" should be chosen (which is most commonly used) and a package provided for it.
Packaging something like this would introduce a dependency to a binary-only
package (hpacucli) which we cannot satisfy with EPEL or RHEL by default in any
case using the repository.
Why not using http://freshmeat.net/projects/arrayprobe/ which includes per
default the support to check HP Smart Arrays and also Nagios Plugin feature:
tux1:~ # arrayprobe
OK Arrayprobe All controllers ok
tux1:~ # echo $?
tux2:~ # arrayprobe
CRITICAL no logical drives detected
tux2:~ # echo $?
Would be an option, yes. Wasn't "that easy" to compile since it demands kernel-sources (not kernel-devel or kernel-headers). However the project looks quite "stale".
My idea was to have a plugin bug not add a dependency to the HP-tools - just have a plugin which "expects" the hp-binary is present.
I just recently got cciss_vol_status into EPEL - does that do what you need?
Well, if this request is still valid, then all we need is someone, who would like to create new package and maintain it. I, personally, won't.
