Windows-Plugin: checks the status of 3ware RAID controllers (or LSI Raid controllers)
check_3ware is a Windows plugin for Nagios which checks the status of 3ware RAID controllers (or LSI Raid controllers). The plugin determines the status of Raidsets, Raid-Controllers and of individual discs (S.M.A.R.T), while all stripe sets are supported
The TW Command Line Tool is installed (tw_cli.exe).
Usually you open the script with the path to CLI:
C:> check_3ware.exe path=<path_to_tw_cli>
For debugging purposes, it may also be called with a more detailed output option (this mode is not suitable for continuous operation, but for testing purposes only).
Afterwards it will output the detailed status of the individual components:
C:> check_3ware.exe path=“C:\Program Files\3ware\CLI“ debug
For information on the plugin and its usage you can call it with the help command:
C:> check_3ware.exe help

When using NSClient ++ an entry in NSC.INI similar to this is generated and pointed to tw_cli:
... [/modules] NRPEServer=enabled CheckExternalScripts=enabled [/settings/NRPE/server] allow arguments=true [/settings/external scripts/scripts] check_3ware=scripts\check_3ware.exe path=“c:\program files\3ware\CLI“ ...
Check 3ware-Controller, if everything is all right: C:> check_3ware path=“C:\Program Files\3ware\CLI“
