Continue with my previous post on installing the Xymon, you can write your own monitor scripts. I wrote a script named v7000alerts to check whether there are active alerts in my IBM StorWize V7000.
1) Download the script v7000alerts to /home/xymon/server/ext, and run ‘chmod a+x v7000alerts’ and ‘chown xymon:xymon v7000alerts’.
2) Add the following into /home/xymon/server/etc/tasks.cfg
3) Add your V7000 into the /home/xymon/server/etc/hosts.cfg file, here is a example:
# STORAGES PAGE
