Morning (or evening depending on where you are)!

I did a preliminary search of the hobbit archives and didn't find what I was looking for (maybe due to sleep deprivation).

Have request to monitor several multi Terabyte raids with critical data anmd be able to identify which disk(s) are complaining. LSI and Highpoint controllers
Are in use. Mfg's software does not specify which disk, w/o running gui.

I am trying to implement robotic arm that will change disks w/o intervention based on hobbit alerts.

Any ideas?

OS running on clients: linux kernel 2.6.24 

Thanks in advance!
