SUMMARY: X4500 e-mail alerts

Sun Managers,

I received 3 e-mails asking for a summary because they had similar 
issues. One e-mail from Bryan Allen with a perl daemon that checks the 
fault manager periodically for errors.

I was hoping Sun had some sort of Diagnostic Reporter similar to the 
3000 arrays. After the lack of responses from Sunmanagers mailing list I 
opened up a case with Sun and was told no such tool exists.

Hopefully Sun will provide something in the future but at the moment it 
looks like you have to write your own / use a 3rd party script to 
periodically check the fault manager or zfs status.

Thank you,
