Check the health of an Adaptec raid controller using /usr/StorMan/arcconf

Checks the following:
Logical device status
Controller status
Failed & Degraded drives

If battery present:
Charging status
Est of charge time left
Charge left %

And removes the log file "UcliEvt.log" that is dropped into the CWD when /usr/StorMan/arcconf is run.

Add this to your "/etc/sudoers" file using visudo
"nagios ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/StorMan/arcconf GETCONFIG 1 *"

## On RHEL & possibly others ##
Disable "Defaults requiretty" in /etc/sudoers otherwise the command will not run via NRPE.

Add this to your checkcommands.cfg

define command {
command_name check_aacraid
command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c check_aacraid
}

Add this to your servicedefs.cfg

define service {
use low-service-level
name aacraid-service
service_description aacraid
check_command check_aacraid
register 0
notification_interval 3600
}

Add the service

define service {
use aacraid-service
host_name host-with-crap-adaptec-crud
contact_groups upset-admin
}

And on the host you will be checking add this to nrpe.cfg
command[check_aacraid]=/usr/local/sbin/check-aacraid.py

I'm pleased with this update but I had to modify the python code to replace the deprecated classes os.popen4 .

I wish these projects were on github so that we could contribute fixes.

Good tool. But i got an
check-aacraid.py:47: DeprecationWarning: os.popen4 is deprecated.
check-aacraid.py:60: DeprecationWarning: os.popen4 is deprecated.

Please add this changes:
* after the includes
from subprocess import PIPE, Popen
* change line 47 to:
for line in Popen(["/usr/bin/sudo","/usr/StorMan/arcconf" , "GETCONFIG","1","LD"], stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, close_fds=True).stdout:
* change line 60 to:
for line in Popen(["/usr/bin/sudo","/usr/StorMan/arcconf" , "GETCONFIG","1","AD"], stdin=PIPE, stdout=PIPE, close_fds=True).stdout:

And no Depricated warnungs will appear at ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Thanks for your good tool

PS: switching to WARNING State when Battery is loading creates too much messages. So i deleted that Feature (quick and dirty):
[...]
if bstatus.group(1) == "Charging":
#if check_status

Thanks for this comprehensive check. I have tweaked the script so that it can also deal with arcconf on Solaris which is located under /opt/StorMan (not /usr/StorMan), plus added a readable version of the Nagios status code to the output.

I don't know how patches are handled around here, so I have uploaded a small patch to

http://pastebin.com/AQQi2GFd

in the meantime. Would you mind merging it?

Thanks for the working and most useful plugin :)

One small suggestion, though.

There is no need for disabling requiretty globally:

Defaults requiretty

Much safer and tighter is to disable requiretty only for the user nagios runs as:

nagios ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/StorMan/arcconf GETCONFIG 1 *
Defaults:nagios !requiretty
