Raid Array Monitoring tools for Embbeded Intel 82801GR

Raid Array Monitoring tools for Embbeded Intel 82801GR

I need to set up some kind of monitoring system for our Raid Arrays in a bunch of servers. Since I am using this embedded Raid controller, this doesn't provide any lights in the hard drive housing or anything, so it is virtually impossible to detect any Raid failure in a setup with more than 20 of these servers.

I am using CentOS in several HP proliant 320 G4. I don't have Smart Raid cards on them, and I am stuck with this setup.

Could you provide me with some help?

Thanks for your help.

The problem here is not finding out if I can load RPMs in CentOS. Though, your response was awesome.

I will repost the question:

"I need to set up some kind of monitoring system for our Raid Arrays in a bunch of servers.

What I mean by all that is... What RPM should I use to be able to monitor raid array states or errors without having to reboot the machines?

Thanks

Hi,

check

http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=502439&swItem=MTX-38cfced7d749465ba958345e26&mode=3

since CentOS is not officially supported there is no warranty it will install, but this is the tool you need.
You can set mail notification if a problem with the storage subsystem occurs.

and just in case default passwords

P.s. there is a newer version, but you don't need it on the G4.
