Now I'm curious about snmp, so perhaps I'll try to figure out how
it to something useful. This machine has 8 hard drives, and is
Manhattan, so I would certainly like to be informed if one of the
drives went on the blink. That was one of the things he was trying
Net-SNMP won't give you the status of the RAID. Neither will bsnmpd
FreeBSD simply does not have the hooks to make this possible. Someone
needs to write the code. I do not recommend relying on shell scripts
tied into Net-SNMP to accomplish this either (for a lot of very good
reasons); write the code in native C.
It also greatly depends on what you're using for RAID. If a hardware
controller, good luck getting the status out of an API natively (sans
Areca, which I believe offers an API) -- you'll resort to shell
and CLI binaries, in which case you're *easily* better off with a
cronjob, periodic(8), or a log monitor daemon.
This machine has an Intel motherboard and a hardware raid controller.
From what I can tell, there is some Intel software installed on the
machine that makes hardware faults visible to snmp.
That last sentence makes it sound like I know more than I do about
this situation. I'm just reading from notes. :-)
And I have an Intel disk that came with the motherboard that hints at
the same type of thing. I've just scanned the docs on the disk...
looks extraordinarily complicated.
I think I'll leave this to a rainy day when I have nothing to do (ha!)
