<p> check\ is a check plugin to check hardware status of HP/Compaq Proliant servers using only the /sbin/hpasmcli binary. It is written in Python and depends on the pexpect package ( which is a purely Python implementation of Expect (and allowing your nagios user passwordless root rights to the hpasmcli binary via sudoers). The plugin checks only the local machine (no SNMP required).</p><p> It is capable of checking the status of fans, power supplies, temperatures, DIMMs and processors. For most of these it just checks the &quot;status&quot; line, but for fans it parses out the current temperature and threshold and compares them, giving a critical if the temperature is over the threshold, and a warning if the temperature is within a given percentage of the threshold.</p><p> Usage is very simple:</p><p> check\ --type={fan|ps|temp|dimm|proc}</p><p> For fans and power supplies, it will also return critical if any of them are listed as not redundant, but this can be overridden by adding a &quot;--ignore-redundant&quot; argument.</p><p> Tested on:</p><p> OpenSuSE 11.1, hp-health-8.1.1-14.sles10 (rpm), DL380 G3</p><p> OpenSuSE 10.1, hpasm-7.7.0-115.sles10 (rpm), DL380 G1</p><p> OpenSuSE 10.1, hpasm-7.7.0-115.sles10 (rpm), ML370 G1</p><p> OpenSuSE 10.2, hpasm-7.7.0-115.sles10 (rpm), DL360 G1</p><p> OpenSuSE 10.2, hpasm-7.7.0-115.sles10 (rpm), DL320 G1</p>
