SubjectRe: CCISS driver and disk failure...
Hi David-

The only way we're able to do this on proliants is to use the *hack*
closed-source HP kernel modules cpqasm and cpqevt. We then run their 30+
userspace daemons that monitor the system via these 2 kernel modules. Slap
their hacked up ucd-snmpd on top of that and you get disk status
monitoring via SNMP on the machine.

On a redhat machine, that's the following RPMs from HP:
cmafdtn
cmanic
cmastor
cmasvr
cpqhealth
ucd-snmp (from HP, of course)

It's a nasty mess, though, so if the cciss author had the time to put disk
fail logging into the driver, that'd be amazingly cool.
