The script utilises the Nimble Storage API to provide some basic hardware status monitoring. Although the Nimble Storage alerting system via Infosight is very good, we all know the warm fuzzy feeling of seeing a nice green service status in NagiosXI. The script only really needs to be scheduled to run once every 30 minutes or so.
The script makes use of the Nimble Storage API, it is recommended to create a read-only account on the Nimble Storage array(s), this can be AD/LDAP or local.

The script uses the Nimble Storage API to retrieve hardware health information such as: Controller A and B state (including disk shelves), PSU, FAN, Disk Health and SAS Cable states. Its a simple script without much error checking, but you should be able to get a basic set of hardware information to know if there is a hardware fault.

The script is written in Python 2.7, check the shebang line at the start of the file to ensure the path to your interpreter is correct.

Example usage:

./check_nimble_health_api.py -e https://array.domain.co.uk:5392 -u username -p password

Within NagiosXI configuration you can use the -e as an argument and enter the URL as written, NagiosXI appears to deal with the escapes correctly.
You may need to put the password in single quotes (if it contains weird characters).

There is a debug mode, add "-d" to the end of the command string for more detailed output for troubleshooting operation of the script, this is best run from the command line of the NagiosXI server.
