I like the diff kind. I use this trick with md arrays as well.

seth at christine:~$ more /etc/cron.raid_status

diff -u /proc/megaraid/hba0/raiddrives-0-9 /etc/megaraid.status.good

Crontab entry
# Raid controller status checken
07 * * * * root bash  /etc/cron.raid_status

This will automatically notify you of raid controller changes and will even 
print which one is "different" from the good config.

I believe it might even tell you about a possible rebuild state.
I don't make sense, I don't pretend to either. Questions?
