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

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.

Tools and daemon to monitor Apple Xserve RAID (1.2-2)

The xserve-raid-tools package provides command line tools and
a daemon for monitoring Apple Xserve RAIDs. It also contains a
"plugin" so that one can monitor Apple Xserve RAIDs with Nagios.

The package is known to work on on RedHat Enterprise Linux 3, RedHat
Fedora Core 3, Mac OS X 10.3 and Mac OS X 10.4. It is written in
perl and has a minimal set of requirements, so it's very portable.

The xserve-raid-status command prints a table listing the RAIDs
and disks installed, their type, make, model, capacity and status.
It can also be told to only list logical devices (RAIDs) or physical
devices (disks).

The xserve-raid-info command prints information about the
configuration of an Xserve RAID. It's output is very similar to
the output from most of the tabs of the RAID Admin tool, except of
course, the output is in plain text.

The xserve-raid-log command prints the log entries for both
controllers sorted by date and time. Unfortunately, Xserve RAIDs
tend to briefly have their system clocks set incorrectly, so you will
probably see some entries listed as "Wed Dec 31" and/or "Thu Jan 1".
These refer to the years 1969 and 1970--shortly after the Unix Epoch
(00:00:00 1970-01-01 GMT.) The only way to discern an approximate
time for these entries is to manually run "xserve-raid-log" with
the "-d -d" options and interpolate the time based on the adjacent
(xml ) entries that have good time stamps.

The xserve-raid-checkd daemon sends email notifications when an
Xserve RAID changes it's state: all optimal, one RAID building or
rebuilding, in standby power state, has a dead RAID or unreachable
(communications failure.)

Lastly, the check_xserve_raid command can act as a Nagios plugin.
Refer to the Nagios documentation for information about integrating
it into Nagios.
