Maybe you can look at monitoring solutions such as Nagios, Zabbix, or
any of the other freely available Unix monitoring systems. There are
some plugins available, based on stuff like omreport, ipmitool, megarc
and megacli. It will take some effort of you're totally new to this, but
you can create a very flexible system with email reporting, sms
notification services, etc.
