Projects / safte-monitor


safte-monitor reads disk enclosure status information from SAF-TE capable enclosures (SCSI Accessible Fault Tolerant Enclosures), which is common on many intelligent SCSI disk enclosures and some rackmount servers with SCSI hotswap drive bays. It can monitor multiple devices and will probe for and detect them. The information retrieved includes power and fan status, temperature, audible alarm, drive faults, array critical/failed/rebuilding state, and door lock status. safte-monitor logs information to syslog and can execute a program with details of component failures. It also has a web status display.
