To monitor hardware and system status of Dell Equallogic devices you must install a third-party check plugin.
The plugin of choice in this matter is "check_equalogic", created by Claudio Kuntzler.

The latest version of the check plugin is available here and a pre-built management pack can be downloaded from the "Contributed management packs" section of the knowledge base.

Plugin installation

It's pretty easy to accomplish this:

  • Download the plugin from the link above
  • Move it to the "/opt/plugins/custom" directory on the Monitor server
  • Create check commands in op5 Monitor for manual configuration or install the management pack.
    Example check commands can be found here or below

Creating the check Command

The following is an example of a check command configuration:

$USER1$/custom/ -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C '$ARG1$' -t $ARG2$ -w $ARG3$ -c $ARG4$


Adding a service

The check plugin can monitor many aspects of the Equallogic devices. In this example we will configure monitoring of hard drive health.

Create a new service on the Equallogic host and  add the following configuration parameters:

Service Name: Disk Status
check_command: check_equalogic
check_command_args: public!disk
