OMSA provides much of that information with omreport.   You can grep or use perl to parse the output into what you need.

$ omreport storage controller
$ omreport storage vdisk
$ omreport storage pdisk controller=0

Subject: collecting RAID info

Hello there.

We have systems with various PERC RAID cards and I would like to be able
to gather basic data about the RAID configs on our servers

In other words, I want to write a script that can report the disk drive
models, size and the RAID level configuration. This is for inventory
purposes so I don't need to worry about the runtime state of the array.
I'm ok with perl and shell, so I really just need guidance on what
interfaces to use to collect the data.
