How to check a hardware level raid with PERC H710 raid controller?


I have a hardware level raid (5) by using PERC H710 controller card.

I want to check periodically raid state and send an email if a problem is found.

I need something like cciss_vol_status HP's utility.

Thanks of advance!


I used the utility MegaCli, as smalpond said. Here's the command:

megacli -LDInfo -Lall -aALL

My checkRaid script (a plugin for Nagios):

megacli="sudo /usr/sbin/megacli"

state="$( $megacli -LDInfo -Lall -aALL | \
sed -ne 's/^[[:space:]]*State[[:space:]]\+:[[:space:]]\+\(.\+\)$/\1/p' )"

if [ "$state" == "Optimal" ] ; then
echo "RAID state: active/clean"
exit 0

echo "RAID state: $state"
exit 2

That's all!!

Thank you smallpond!
