LSI Logic - LsiUtil - RAID


Gives information about physical disks and volumes of LSI Logic SAS RAID controllers through the lsiutil utility.

Connector ID: LSIUtilUNIX

This connector is superseded by:


Typical platform: Any system with LSI lsiutil

Operating systems: Linux, Oracle Solaris


Leverages: lsiutil

Technology and protocols: System Commands

This connector requires advanced privileges on the managed host for the command below:

  • lsiutil

This connector therefore needs to run as root or you need to configure a privilege-escalation mechanism like sudo on the managed host to allow the monitoring account to run the command listed above.

Sample of /etc/sudoers to allow the above command to be run as root by the hwsagent account:

hwsagent ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: lsiutil



hws HOSTNAME -t linux -f LSIUtilUNIX --ssh -u USER --sudo-command-list lsiutil


- host:
    hostname: <HOSTNAME> # Change with actual host name
    type: linux
  selectedConnectors: [ LSIUtilUNIX ] # Optional, to load only this connector
    username: <USERNAME> # Change with actual credentials
    password: <PASSWORD> # Encrypted using hws-encrypt
    useSudo: true
    useSudoCommands: [ "lsiutil" ]

Connector Activation Criteria

The LSI Logic - LsiUtil - RAID connector will be automatically activated, and its status will be reported as OK if all the below criteria are met:

  • Operating System is Linux or Oracle Solaris
  • The command below succeeds on the monitored host
    • Command: for CONTROLLERID in 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9; do lsiutil -p$CONTROLLERID -a 1,2,0 21; done
    • Output contains: ^PhysDisk [0-9] (regex)
