Summary: new plugin: checking Compaq Smart Array Controllers

Initial Comment:
this plugin checks status from various older Compaq 
Smart Array Controllers - most of them still in use today

most of this work is based on the source from cpqarrad-
1.3 by Hugo Trippaers

it will be most usefull togehter with check_nrpe

I'm looking for someone with knowledge about newer 
Smart Array Controllers and eventually some details 
about HP/Compaq's "health driver" - this would be a real 
fine thing to have integrated without "blind" snmp

Thank you very much for the plugin and sorry for the long
wait before it was acknowledged.

Plugin should be in the /contrib directory of the CVS in 1-2

I am actually going to start a module for the CPQ Wellness 
Drivers and such, through SNMP if possible. They store all the 
information in the /proc directory for their monitoring agents. 
Well, I will let you know how it goes.

hi recentcoin

correct, Compaq has their own agents, but they expect you 
to install lot's of different agents and tolls and snmp and so 
on which (at least I do think so) noone needs nor want's

what I'm looking for is something really small (at the best 100-
200 kb) which connect's to the SA hardware through the 
cciss interface; if it can do more like reading information 
about cpu and fan states, that would be fine but not required

compaq/hp agents also pretend you to install redhat/suse 
servers which is quite a limited choice and even if it works i'm 
not so pleased with doing workarounds to have it running on

I know that compaq installes their own agent (SmartStart 
stuff) and their own MIBS in order to do the health checks on 
the drives and the controller.  I have the Compaq MIB's if that 
will be of any assistance to you.  I also have a lot of Sun, 
Cisco, etc. MIBS if anyone here needs them to aid in driver
