Hi there,
I'm using Proxmox 5.1 with a LSI 4-port Raid Controller and of course I can check via cli with megacli how my RAID is doing. However, I need a solution that notifies me right away when a drive fails or SMART values turn bad.

Do you have an idea how this is implemented the best way? Previously with software raid I could use mdadm to do this but I'm a bit unsure of how to do this now.

Thanks a lot and best regards!

I don't really have much experience with those solutions. Do you have any kind of guide regarding one of those solutions in combination with Proxmox? Smartmontools is already installed. I need to see what happens with the RAID also, degrading, failed disks etc.
