This tool will poll the output of command(s) or URL(s), and send email alerts if the output changes, contains (or not contains) certain text, or becomes unavailable. It’s a light weight, reliable monitoring replacement for the pile of garbage most RAID vendors include with their cards. Complex excludes and finds can be specified as Perl regex patterns — useful for suppression various noise (RAID verify, ect). The default configuration includes examples that will monitor local LSI or Adaptec cards.
Note – Tested on CentOS only. if someone wants to try Alien on Debian please let me know how it works.
