Remote Raid checking


#1

I am trying to monitor a RAID array on a remote Linux box. Does anyone know how to do this? Monitoring the local array is easy with plugins, but using those same plugins with NRPE does not work.

TIA

Someone on the nagios mailing list responded with the following… I am now using it to do what I want and it is working great.

"To do a check similar to this I used check_by_ssh and put the
plugin on the remote host. I then used an ssh key so the nagios user could
log in to the nagios account on the remote host without a password and
execute the plugin. "

in this case it could be easier doing it with an snmp script. thought via snmp it wouldn’t work but if there’s something returning an output… :slight_smile:
