Monitoring HP Raid Array Status


Recommended Posts

I have using Pulseway to monitor 40 servers, most of them are HP Proliant. One of my big issues for 3 years old server is the hard drive fails. Does Pulseway support monitoing Raid status so that I can net notice/warning when HDD failing. If so, how to set it up?

On HP Proliant servers you can install "HP ProLiant Smart Array Event Notification Service" which can be downloaded from the support page of your HP server or here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&softwareitem=MTX-e490f1753f2445968941396c39 . Also check out this article shows an example event generated by the service: http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay?javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.prp_ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c01686968-4%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.tpst=ba847bafb2a2d782fcbb0710b053ce01&ac.admitted=1408614962323.876444892.492883150


Once the notification service is configured to write to the event log you can use Pulseway to notify you when such events are written.

Thank you Marius. All set up and works for Windows.


Next, I have few HP Proliant server running Centos 5 and 6, How can I monitor these servers running Linux platform.  Or should I create a new post under Linux section?

dmraid not installed.


I can use cciss can view status. If I installed HPACUCLI, it will show more details.


However, back to the question, How can Pulseway send me warning when the Hard drive shows predictive failing or fails.
