Description Stefan Neufeind 2008-10-25 18:17:33 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.
Comment 1 Robert Scheck 2008-10-25 20:25:45 EDT
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:~ # 
tux1:~ # echo $?
tux1:~ #

tux2:~ # arrayprobe
CRITICAL no logical drives detected
tux2:~ # 
tux2:~ # echo $?
tux2:~ #

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?
Comment 4 Peter Lemenkov 2010-06-09 05:20:51 EDT
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.
