Re: Dell PowerEdge 2950 server with PERC 5/i RAID controller

are there any diagnostic/monitoring tools in linux (debian etch for
instance) for monitoring Dell PERC 5/i RAID controller. I found that
there are some utilities for RHEL/SuSE enterprise distribution. Has
anyone managed to see status of controller in Debian? What tools do I
need to use/install and are any kernel patches required? It would be
nice to see raid status as also the faulty disks :)
Add deb ftp://ftp.sara.nl/pub/sara-omsa dell sara to /etc/apt/
sources.list and apt-get install dellomsa. This will get you the Dell
monitoringtools; the omreport-tool will get you all sorts of info on
/opt/dell/srvadmin/oma/bin/omreport storage -?
omreport Reports component properties.
The available command(s) are:
adisk Display array disk(s) properties. DEPRECATED: please
pdisk Display physical disk(s) properties.
vdisk Display virtual disk(s) properties.
controller Display controller(s) properties.
enclosure Display enclosure properties.
channel Display channel properties. DEPRECATED: please use
battery Display battery properties.
globalinfo Display global storage properties.
connector Display connector properties.
Apart from that omreport will also give you information on fan
speeds, temperature, installed hardware, etc. It also installs an
SNMP agent that allows you to monitor RAID status, fan speeds,
temperature, etc via SNMP. The SNMP agent is disabled by default, but
is easy to setup. We use this both for monitoring and to graph fan
speeds and temperature with cacit.
