Monitor Promise FastTrack TX2000 RAID controller


Hello! I'd like to know if some of you have a Promise ATA RAID controller (TX2, TX2000 or any other, it should be the same)...I'm trying to find a way to montor the RAID Array but there is nothing special on the official website apart a file with C code (FT-ioctl.txt in the latest RedHat driver pack).

Does someone have a solution?

I have a perl script to monitor our servers at work - it checks the array every 15 minutes and sends an e-mail if there is a problem. I can post it on Monday if you like.

Here is the script I use:
Code:
#!/usr/bin/perl

$address = "it.support\@somehost.com";
$time = localtime(time());
@lines = `cat /proc/scsi/FastTrak/0`;
if($lines[2] ne "Array    - Array[1] : 1X2 Mirror (OK)\n"){
print "$time Raid Failure! - $lines[2]";
open(MAIL, "|/usr/lib/sendmail -t");
print MAIL "To:$address\n";
print MAIL "From:$address\n";
print MAIL "Subject:The Mail server has a raid failure!\n\n$lines[2]\n";
close(MAIL);
}
else{
print "$time Raid OK! - $lines[2]";
}

exit;
