Tool for monitoring software RAID.

Overview

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.
  • uses Mac OS X built-in RAID technology to check AppleRAID volumes
  • the new RaidEye daemon runs in background, RAID failures are notified even if system is left at login screen
  • constantly monitors RAID volumes status
  • in case of RAID error notifies failures with email and sound alerts
  • Includes RaidEye application frontend to install, configure and monitor RaidEye daemon
  • uses google gMail SMTP server to send alert emails
  • installs and runs in a few clicks on Mac workstations and laptops
  • Includes a bash installer and configuration tool to install and run on headless servers
  • RaidEye supports Mac OS X software RAID volumes (AppleRAID). Use Disk Utility to create, repair and manage RAID volumes.
  • RaidEye is a Universal application, runs on both PowerPC and Intel architectures on Mac OS X 10.5, 10.6, 10.7, 10.8
  • RaidEye is free and open source. NLPL license applies. Source code included in installer package.

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.)

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.
