CPQ Array Daemon project keeps on monitoring your controller and checks for abnormal conditions. By default is only reports to the syslogs, but you can make it send SNMP Traps to selected hosts.
This tool can run on a linux based intel box with a smart array controller from Compaq. It reports status changes in the disks both to the syslog and to a snmp trap host.
The default is to only log to the syslog. You can specify traphosts with the -t parameter at the commandline. Multiple traphosts are allowed. It checks for valid input, but any errors are non-fatal, in fact the traphost is just ignored..
To ensure correct opereration compile it for the same kernel that runs on the machine where you want to use this. At least make sure that the version of the SmartArray driver is the same. Strange things can happen otherwise.
The simplest way to compile this package is:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type `./configure' to configure the package for your system. If you're using `csh' on an old version of System V, you might need to type `sh ./configure' instead to prevent `csh' from trying to execute `configure' itself.
Running `configure' takes awhile. While running, it prints some messages telling which features it is checking for.
2. Type `make' to compile the package.
3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with the package.
4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and documentation.
5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came with the distribution.
· You need to have the SmartArray patch installed.
