RaidEye is a tool for monitoring software RAID sets. When a RAID volume fails, RaidEye warns you with an alert sound and an alert email. RaidEye runs in background as a daemon. The graphic interface is used only to configure and monitor RaidEye status. A bash installer for headless servers is also available. RaidEye daemon is a C application, RaidEye frontends are cocoa/applescript and python applications. Why RaidEye? Because Mac OS X comes with an easy way to create RAID volumes (mirrored or striped), but has not a good way to control their integrity and to give feedbacks and alerts to system administrators.

What's New

Version 2.2:

Great ! Should work at Apple :-)

FYI, I give up using Apple Soft Raid, had too many RAID getting problems... sometimes, repairing takes 8 hours for a 2 GB mirror raid ! Really not stable, a shame if you use mirror Raid as a backup solution.

I only use Interlaced RAID to get a very fast small HD (128GB) but use it only for temporary files, java, download temps...

Too bad.

Version 2.2

far is too small, we should talk in Parsec!

I even give up the small raid, and for backup I join Justcloud http://goo.gl/n5gIs unlimited size for 40$/y.

Version 2.2

Looks like the dev's website is down. The listing's been updated with a locally-mirrored copy of version 2.2 for the time being.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

If you're running a software RAID, as set up by Apple's Disk Utility, you should be running RaidEye. Pretty straightforward, and has saved my bacon once already. (Though my wife didn't like being awoken at 3am by the klaxon-like WOOP-WOOP-WOOP that RaidEye plays when it detects a problem with your RAID set.)

I second that. This has saved my bacon too!
(Had a ham sandwich instead. Mmm...tasty.)


Thanks for the review, I'm using it after I lost my bacon... very happy with this free solution and will be sending a donation to the author!
