this is raid-card specific, depends on what card your using. 3Ware
raid cards have a program that can monitor their raid arrays. I'm
not aware off hand of any other raid vendor that has such software.
there is mdadm for monitoring software raid arrays. But the thing
with hardware raid, is the OS is not aware there is a raid array
so you need something that can talk to the driver directly. Or
maybe the driver puts something in /proc which can be parsed by
a script to generate alerts.
