Nagios Health Check of a DDN SFA12K

Part of my $dayjob as a sysadmin is to monitor all things.

I’ll be publishing my home-made nagios checks on github in the near future.

Here is the first one that uses the Web API of a DDN’s SFA12K (might work on the 10k too, haven’t tried) which is a storage platform.

The URL to the check is located here: https://github.com/martbhell/nagios-checks/tree/master/plugins/check_ddn

Unfortunately it seems that the Python Egg (the library / API bindings) is still not available online so one has to ask DDN Support to get that.

It’s not perfect, there’s much room for improvement, refactoring, moving the password/username out of a variable and it makes many assumptions.
But making it work for you shouldn’t be too hard. If you have any questions comment here or on github :)
