Adaptec RAID controller monitoring with Netdata

Collects logical and physical devices metrics.


The module uses arcconf, which can only be executed by root. It uses sudo and assumes that it is configured such that the netdata user can execute arcconf as root without password.

Add to sudoers:

netdata ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /path/to/arcconf

To grab stats it executes:

  • sudo -n arcconf GETCONFIG 1 LD
  • sudo -n arcconf GETCONFIG 1 PD

It produces:

  1. Logical Device Status

  2. Physical Device State

  3. Physical Device S.M.A.R.T warnings

  4. Physical Device Temperature


adaptec_raid is disabled by default. Should be explicitly enabled in python.d.conf.

adaptec_raid: yes

Edit the python.d/adaptec_raid.conf configuration file using edit-config from the Netdata config directory, which is typically at /etc/netdata.

cd /etc/netdata # Replace this path with your Netdata config directory, if different
sudo ./edit-config python.d/adaptec_raid.conf
