Monitoring Hardware RAID on Linux

Hi,

I wrote an article about integrating OpenNMS with OpenManage sometime ago. 
http://lists.us.dell.com/pipermail/linux-poweredge/2003-June/013742.html
It may be of some use.  Basically, I forward the traps generated by Dell's
Systems Management software via the Linux native SNMP agent to the NMS.  I
also translated the Dell MIB using mib2opennms to convert those traps into
human readable XML(don't laugh) to be used by OpenNMS.  Hope this helps.

Read ya,

Joshua Giles

We use a script that runs every 5 minutes.  Not very sophisticated, but it
works.  Swatch watches syslog



#less afa-check.sh
#!/bin/sh
/usr/sbin/afacli @/usr/sbin/afa.cmds | grep Off | logger -p Local0.Warn
/usr/sbin/afacli @/usr/sbin/afa-task.cmds | grep Rebuild | logger -p
Local0.Warn



 #less afa.cmds
open afa0
disk list
exit

# less afa-task.cmds
open afa0
task list
exit
