Monitoring Netapp LUN directly may possible using SNMP by calling OID, in different way and dirty way using shell script. Here is an way Netapp Lun state Monitoring using Nagios- Dirty Way. 

Netapp Lun State Monitoring using Nagios Steps :

  • Creating read-only account in Netapp
  • Provide access to read-only account to execute Lun commands
  • Create Key Based Access (Passwordless Access) from Linux Server to Netapp controller
  • Copy below script to /usr/local/nagios/libexec  file name

Use below Article to create Netapp User with read-only access

Creating User in Netapp 7 Mode

To Create Passwordless connection between Linux and Netapp First Generate ssh key from Linux machine 

[root@ArkitServer ~]# ssh-keygen -t rsa
Generating public/private rsa key pair.
Enter file in which to save the key (/root/.ssh/id_rsa):
Created directory '/root/.ssh'.
Enter passphrase (empty for no passphrase):
Enter same passphrase again:
Your identification has been saved in /root/.ssh/id_rsa.
Your public key has been saved in /root/.ssh/
The key fingerprint is:
24:e6:b5:71:7b:60:36:a4:3b:12:0e:87:ed:8e:8f:a9 root@ArkitServer
The key's randomart image is:
+--[ RSA 2048]----+
| . |
| o o |
| o * = * |
| B = B + |
| = S . . |
| o . . . |
| . . |
| + |
| E.o . |

Change Directory path to .ssh/ from user profile and copy the public content to Netapp controller to get access via passwordless authentication

[root@ArkitServer ~]# cd .ssh/
[root@ArkitServer .ssh]# ls
[root@ArkitServer .ssh]# cat
ssh-rsa AAAAB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABAAABAQDxfpqVe7OgXy/RUfvqqqe9/kPaNj2LKPs79HZEvp4U0aZUT12g9uV4vHPmwd7RvDtJ9JJK129X2hAVYh0qAWwduGppWBeMjQwYHmCUCrU99BLBBtYNAxsd18zXxQvIvaMk5gTeYf9xcNXpKuziIt/4fs0AbadVCYq1obAAmfmkwJBmvIjv0zGzLpsRqARK/e1Z7jHaGGMNkoCJqmWxjhDftLdRNeMwPCTNEtHYBG9+polfe4Wlrhl2Z8Mk2qzJaOmruUjpWoqI6Dyr006evYWPINy2YkNNtRaPOpyy5467tndFIM2b7AkMC2KDJlWSo36/MV66j root@ArkitServer

Open Netapp CIFS share \NEtappFilerIP\ETC$

sshd/.ssh/username/authorized_keys Paste public key content here

Command Syntax

./ /vol/vol2/lun

Define command in commands configuration file

#vi /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg
# 'check_lunstatus' command check netapp lun status
define command{
command_name check_lunstatus
command_line $USER1$/ $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$

Now add service configuration

define service{
use generic-service
host_name cn-ark-netapp01
service_description Lun status Check
check_command check_lunstatus!/vol/vol2/lun1

Below is the script

if [ "$1" = "" ]; then
echo "Usage: ./Scriptname FilerIP LUNPath"
exit 1
LUNCHECK=$( ssh 'root@'$1 lun show $2 | awk '{ print $5 }' )
output="Lun State: $LUNCHECK"
if [ $LUNCHECK != online, ]; then
echo "CRITICAL - $output"
exit 2
echo "OK - Lun State: $LUNCHECK"
exit 0
