Check all active software raid arrays on a Linux server.
Simple shell script that reads /proc/mdstat and creates some status according to that files content.
Unlike other scripts found here this script does not need any root access to mdadm.
Just start it, the script doesn't need any arguments.

Hi,

I added another status for state "check" which is OK (0), and dumps the % complete.

############

[root@stack2 bin]# ./check_md_raid
OK - Checked 1 arrays, check : 0.4%

############

[root@stack2 bin]# more ./check_md_raid

Yet I changed some lines, making this script more useful for our environment, from the last review.

Next step would be to parse the raid status, but so far I got the messages listed below, so this is how far my script could go.

Cheers!
