# modinfo zfs|grep debug
parm:           zfs_dbgmsg_enable:Enable ZFS debug message log (int)
parm:           zfs_dbgmsg_maxsize:Maximum ZFS debug log size (int)

It seems that there are module parameters for this.

# find /sys/module/zfs|grep debug

But the ones I want can only be set at boot time.

The Linux port of ZFS doesn't have all the features of the BSD ports.

Thanks for the pointer.  I've attached a modified version of that which works 
with zfsonlinux.  I don't think it's a very useful plugin, I tested it on a 
zpool that has multiple checksum errors and it reports no problems!

Nagios has a web based interface to manage it that allows acknowledging error 
conditions.  This is a great feature if you have a large team of sysadmins, 
someone can acknowledge a problem before starting work so no-one else 
duplicates their effort.

For a smaller network this sort of thing isn't necessary and the added 
complexity of Nagios just gets in the way.  Mon is much simpler and has a 
single config file.

The Nagios model is to have a single very complex monitoring system while the 
mon model tends towards multiple simple installations.  Nagios has a nrpe 
daemon on each monitored server while with Mon you have Mon on each server and 
a master Mon monitoring them all.

I gave a LUV lecture about Mon earlier this year.  I could run a hands-on 
tutorial at the Beginner's SIG if there's interest.
