Monitor /proc/mdstat ~ Pingdom Server Monitor
Plugins like this provide extra functionality beyond Pingdom Server Monitor's default monitoring capabilities. This and 90+ other plugins are available via a one-click install in our web interface.

Monitor /proc/mdstat

Monitors /proc/mdstat for disk failures.


Monitors /proc/mdstat for disk failures, reporting the following metrics:

  • Total Disks
  • Down Disks
  • Active Disks
  • Spares
  • Failed Disks

If a disk failure is detected, an alert is generated.

This plugin isn’t applicable for RAID 0 because RAID 0 isn’t redundant: a single drive failure destroys the array.
