Check status of HDS AMS series storage using SNMP v1 SNMP GET request
Plugin let you a possibility to get HDS AMS storage status using active nagios plugin checks.
1. Net::SNMP module installed
2. SNMP agent configured on the storage system.

Tested with HDS AMS500, AMS2500

If you prefer using passive checks by handling snmp traps, you better use trap handling because it is faster and get you status change immediately not waiting for plugin schedule to activate check process.

Works with 2100 models too

Good plugin to quickly check the AMS for hardware problems. Of course more output information would be nice, but I know that HDS' SNMP information is rare.
Thanks also to user car, which fixed the perl warnings with his diff.

This also works on our AMS2300s. Thanks for saving me some valuable time and effort.

I had a couple of minor troubles, hopefully they'll help someone.

Firstly, I had trouble because I assumed that our AMS' community string would be "public". D'oh. I found it under Storage Nav -> Arrays -> (array) -> Settings -> SNMP Agent ->Environment Settings

Secondly, the script suffers a runtime failure when it attempts to report a failure:

Use of uninitialized value in string eq at check_hds_ams line 191.

which, unless I've misunderstood, appears to be a broken test in a home-rolled join() function. The following seems to be a fix:
