[despammed] Monitoring PERC3/4 using megaraid2

This seems like a simple solution but I can't locate an 'optimal' string to search for; my only megaraid servers have perc/dc and perc4/di ..
[root at apollomail1 root]# ls /proc/megaraid/0/
config  mailbox  stat  status

And none of these files seem helpful.. 'cat status' shows only "TBD" , whatever that means.
Is this megaraid 1 and not 2?

I just put the following line in root's crontab:

grep -ih state /proc/megaraid/*/raiddrives-* | grep -v optimal

Simple is beautiful ;)
