Although there haven't been a lot of news about the monitoring plugins I maintain lately, that doesn't mean they're dead.
Today a new version of check_smart.pl is ready: v 5.8. The new version allows to use the global parameter (-g/--global) to be used in conjunction with a regular expression on the interface parameter (-i/--interface) for MegaRaid controllers.
A practical example:
$ sudo ./check_smart.pl -g /dev/sda -i megaraid,[8-9]
OK: [/dev/sda] - Device is clean --- [/dev/sda] - Device is clean|
This allows to check the logical drive /dev/sda with the drives megaraid,8 and megaraid,9 to be checked. This is helpful for folks who prefer to run one monitoring check on all drives instead of setting up individual checks per drive.
Credits go to Bobby Jones for the contribution.
