Like most good Linux nerds, I use mdadm to control my software RAID arrays in Linux. While it is an extremely powerful and flexible tool, mdadm does not allow the administrator to email to non-localhost email boxes. So we will get around that having mdadm run as a monitoring daemon and trigger a python script for actual emailing.
- Use mdadm to easily and automatically monitor raid array condition
- Send email notifications with the event, the affected md device, and current md status
