How can you tell if the RAID on the Malware Analysis Appliance is healthy?
The easiest way to confirm the health of the RAID on the Malware Analysis is to log in to the GUI and look at the Health Monitor indicator at the bottom of the browser. If the status is Green, then the RAID sync status is also healthy.
If the appliance is running MAA version 4.1.4 or greater, you can also run a command line utility to check the status of the RAIDs.
NOTE: This only works on Bluecoat hardware (MAA S400 or S500). This does not work on HP hardware.
Output should be similar to this output from a healthy S500 MAA appliance:
[email protected]:~$ sudo python /opt/mag2/usr/share/mag2/pyscripts/raidcheck.pyc
Bay Device State
1 /dev/sdc1 active sync
2 /dev/sdd1 active sync
3 /dev/sde1 active sync
4 /dev/sdf1 active sync
5 /dev/sdg1 active sync
6 /dev/sdh1 active sync
If the GUI or the raid check utility report anything else, please contact technical support.
