More info on this plugin:
check_openmanage checks the hardware health of Dell servers running OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA). The plugin can be used remotely with SNMP or locally with NRPE, check_by_ssh or similar, whichever suits your needs and particular taste. The plugin checks the health of the storage subsystem, power supplies, memory modules, temperature probes etc., and gives an alert if any of the components are faulty or operate outside normal parameters.
Here are some of its results:
dell-server01 ~$ check_openmanage
OK – System: ‘PowerEdge R710′, SN: ‘XXXXXXX’, 72 GB ram (18 dimms), 1 logical drives, 2 physical drives
nagios-server ~$ check_openmanage -H dell-server02
Physical Disk 1:3 [Seagate ST3300007LC, 300GB] on ctrl 0 needs attention: Failure Predicted
It’s neat output and nagios ability to keep us alerted about server issues via email, sound alert through nagios plugins etc makes it feel good to keep a healthier RAID array running on servers.
