Usage Run the plugin is as follows:
RAID OK: All arrays OK [1 array checked]

It requires the mdadm utility which is what you also used to create the raid
array. If it is not in the standard location of /sbin/mdadm then just do the
ln -s /path/to/mdadm /sbin/mdadm

and then run the plugin again.

This runs straight on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems and all modern linux
distros that have Python. This has been tested and all works nicely for me on
servers of both architectures and across distros. The plugin must be run as
root in order to test the state of all the arrays. Use sudo to grant the nagios
or nrpe user the rights to run it using sudo without a password like so:
add the following line:
nagios (ALL)=ALL NOPASSWD:/path/to/check_md_raid

Rewritten to work with python 2.3 as well (no longer uses subprocess for those
of you on debian...)
