NAME

mpt-status - retrieve configuration and health status from LSI hardware RAID controllers

 

SYNOPSIS

mpt-status [ options ]

 

DESCRIPTION

The mpt-status software is a query tool to access the running configuration and status of LSI SCSI HBAs. mpt-status allows you to monitor the health and status of your RAID setup.

 

OPTIONS

~ --autoload
This will try to automatically load the mptctl kernel module.
-u --controller <int>
Set the IOC unit (controller).
-h --help
Print some help information.
-n --newstyle
Use the new style output. This parameter was introduced to retain backwards compatibility. If not set, you get the old style output. It is very likely that the output of the newstyle format will change heavily in the future, so do not rely on it when writing plugins for monitoring software, for example.
-i --set_id <int>
Set id of primary device (check README).
-p --probe_id
Use this to probe SCSI id's when not on id 0.
-q --quiet
Do not display any warnings.
-s --status_only
Only print the status information. This can be used for easy scripting
-v --verbose
Print verbose information, such as warnings
-V --version
Print version information
-d --debug [<int>]
Enable debugging and set level optionally. NOTE: This is not fully implemented yet.

 

DIAGNOSTICS

The program's exit(2) status is meant to be interpreted as a bit mask. If everything went well, zero is returned. If not (i.e. if for example an error or unknown condition is detected), the bits of the return value shall be interpreted as:
BitValueMeaning



12A logical volume has failed
24A logical volume is degraded
38A logical volume is resyncing
416At least one physical disk failed
532At least one physical disk is in warning condition

 

REPORTING BUGS

Report bugs to your linux distribution or software vendor, if mpt-status was bundled on your installation. If you have been compiling mpt-status from the vanilla sources and experience problems, redirect them to preferably <ratz@drugphish.ch> or <rnibali@pyx.ch>.

 

BUGS

Besides design bugs, gross software engineering and missing features, this software is considered pretty stable and can be used in production environments.
