It doesn't...

/proc/megaraid/ exists, but only has :

/proc/megaraid/0/ :
total 0
-r--------    1 root     root            0 Mar 16 12:38 config
-r--------    1 root     root            0 Mar 16 12:38 mailbox
-r--------    1 root     root            0 Mar 16 12:38 stat
-r--------    1 root     root            0 Mar 16 12:38 status

May I remind you that I use megaraid, not megaraid2. And in most situations 
in my case, megaraid2 is not an option...

I'm still wrestling to make the first plugin to work (user percsnmp)...
