That should be mpt-status. I read the man page for mpt-status and what you
see is pretty much what you get. If you install mpt-status, you need to load
the mptctl module and then you can run mpt-status for info on your RAID.
The debian version of mpt-status also installs /etc/init.d/mpt-statusd. This
shell script is started automatically at boot (as you might expect from it's
name and location). I had a hard time finding documentation for this script
but it's actually pretty well documented within the script itself. All it
does is run mpt-status periodically, greps for 'state OPTIMAL', and if it
doesn't find it, sends an email message to root. The deb package does not
create a config file but the documentation in the script itself says it
will read /etc/default/mpt-statusd for parameters like email address and how
often to check the state.
I'm still using the debian port of the dellomsa tools to monitor CPU temp.
But it looks as if RAID monitoring is taken care of.
