hardware raid linux

I have two compaq servers running linux redhat 7.3
One is a ML350 (p800), the other is ML370 G2.
They are both running raid5s. The controllers are the smart arrays. I just had a drive blow out on the older one. I only found out by seeing the orange light on the drive. I would like to set something up that would send me more info about the health of my array and its hardware. I have installed cpqarrayd and it looks like it is running (via ps afx).
Has anyone used this or does anyone have any ideas?

Did you check the syslog?
Have a look at

You can get information and alerts on things like that from using the Insight Manager agents. There is also a new Insight Manager console that runs on Linux. Check out these links:
