Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

- Ethan


With this little Python script you have the ability to check your Veritas servicegroups and the status of your volumegroups. Please use ./ -h to get an overview of the needed parameters.
In all cases you need the exact name of the servicegroup which is shown by the output of /opt/VRTS/bin/hastatus -sum and of course you need the exact name of the volumegroup.
