I'm thinking that it would be an overkill to have this as an Icinga NRPE check. Some other alternatives might be:

  • check Icinga configuration to ensure that all hosts have at least one of the RAID checks md|Mega|HP|...
  • write a spicerack cookbook to check the hosts and run it as a weekly crontab

Yes, i was thinking the same. I did not expect to add this as an Icinga check. I expected to add a script that is run by cron and sends out email to tell us.
