Checks Linux Software Raid (also known as MD Raid). Works on both 32-bit and 64-bit systems
Usage Run the plugin is as follows:
./check_md_raid
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 following
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:
visudo
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...)
