Hi Mike,

As far as I know you can monitor the array in two ways:
1) Using Dell MDSM and its SNMP traps and e-mail notifications (not the 
best way for me, because you have to have the MDSM running all the time)
2) Using Nagios, but you have to install SMcli which also involves 
installing JDK

I haven't heard of any other way yet.

Under this link: 
you can found some sample scripts to monitor the array using Nagios.

Best regards,
