To monitor hardware and system status of Dell Equallogic devices you must install a third-party check plugin. The plugin of choice in this matter is "check_equalogic", created by Claudio Kuntzler.
The latest version of the check plugin is available here and a pre-built management pack can be downloaded from the "Contributed management packs" section of the knowledge base.
It's pretty easy to accomplish this:
- Download the plugin from the link above
- Move it to the "/opt/plugins/custom" directory on the Monitor server
- Create check commands in OP5 Monitor for manual configuration or install the management pack.
- Example check commands can be found here or below
The following is an example of a check command configuration:
$USER1$/custom/check_equallogic.sh -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C '$ARG1$' -t $ARG2$ -w $ARG3$ -c $ARG4$
The check plugin can monitor many aspects of the Equallogic devices. In this example we will configure monitoring of hard drive health.
Create a new service on the Equallogic host and add the following configuration parameters:
Service Name: Disk Status
