Connector file name: MS_HW_SunIostatNonSun.hdf

This connector is superseded by:

Description

Gives physical disk information (status and error count) on Sun Solaris systems through the iostat -En utility. Supports only non-Sun official disks.

Target

Typical platform: Oracle/Sun

Operating system: Oracle Solaris

Prerequisites

Leverages: Sun Solaris system commands (iostat, dd)

Technology and protocols: System Commands

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

  • /usr/bin/dd

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 patrol account:

patrol ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/dd
