IBM servers: Physical Disks
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check monitors the state of the physical disks on a
IBM xSeries / SystemX PC-based server that has the IBM SNMP
management software installed.
It can be used for "agentless" monitoring of disk failures,
and should even work with different types of raid controllers
in the same server. (It is only tested on a system with
one Adaptec-based controller)
The check verifies a disk has not disappeared, and will go
to CRIT otherwise. If there is status data for the disk the
check will return CRIT for a dead disk, WARN for a disk
that is rebuilding and OK if the disk is active.
A combination of the controller, enclosure and the slot number, separated by
a slash, for example "1/0/4" for controller 1, enclosure 0 and slot 4.
The naming is chosen to be compatible with the megaraid_pdisks check, so in
dual monitoring one of them needs to be disabled using disabled_checks.
All disks are automatically inventorized.
