how to check on drives behind an hp/compaq raid controller

Per Jessen-2
A while ago, someone asked about how to monitor harddrives sat behind
an HP or Compaq SMART array controller.  
I've been looking into it and whilst not as easy and straight forward as
with smartmonctl, it does work pretty well.

You need to get hold of a Proliant Support Pack from HP - these are
freely available for download, but not necessarily so easy to find.  Do
some searching, and you'll find one.  I used psp-8.11 for sles10.  

Another very useful tool is the nagios plugin found here:

http://www.consol.de/opensource/nagios/check-hpasm/

With check_hpasm and the PSP installed, you can poll hardware status and
get something like this:

# /usr/libexec/check_hpasm -H localhost -v
System        :proliant dl380
Serial No.    :8120FK411400
ROM version   :P17 12/18/2002
cpu #0 is ok
powersupply #1 is ok
powersupply #2 is ok
fan 1 speed is normal, pctmax is 50%, location is cpu, redundance is no,
partner is N/A
fan 2 speed is normal, pctmax is 50%, location is powersupply,
redundance is no, partner is N/A
1 cpu temperature is 27 (58 max)
2 cpu temperature is 28 (68 max)
3 ioboard temperature is 26 (62 max)
dimm module 1 @ cartridge 0 needs attention (n/a)
dimm module 2 @ cartridge 0 needs attention (n/a)
dimm module 3 @ cartridge 0 needs attention (n/a)
dimm module 4 @ cartridge 0 needs attention (n/a)
controller in slot 0 is ok
controller cache in slot 0 is ok
physical drive 0:0 is ok
physical drive 0:1 is ok
physical drive 0:2 is ok
physical drive 0:3 is ok

You can also configure the various HP daemons to generate snmp traps
and/or send you an email when something changes.
