Monitoring disks and power supplies and fans and such...

On the old Dell PE 2550 and 2650  I used afacli in a script to check the 
status of the disks and the raid containers every few hours.  It would 
generate a syslog message and an e-mail message if there was  a problem.

Is there a way to do the same thing on the new Megaraid2 controllers?
Whatabout checking the Power Supply and FAN status's?

I did install the OMSA stuff, but sheesh it starts about 40 threads for 
about 5 or 6 different processes...  I just want to make sure the box is 
OK every 6-12 hours or so.  I really don't want to have to use SNMP to 
do it.
