SNMP Disk Health Plugin

Is it possible to write a plugin just to monitor when a disk drive's health begins to fail?

Absolutely. If you can point us at the MIB file and OID(s) you want
to monitor, we can help get you started on a plugin.

Sweet, lemme go find out that information. Do I need to know Java? I can only code in C++, but I hear Java is similar to C++.

You don't need to know Java, but yes, if you know C++, Java should be
easy to pick up 🙂
In this case, no code should be required, have a look at the examples:

http://svn.hyperic.org/branches/HQ_2_7/plugins/examples/?root=Hyperic+HQ

netscalar, squid, wxgoos and zxtm plugins are all SNMP based.
For the most part, they just define resource types and which OIDs to
collect.
We still need to add docs on writing SNMP based plugins, in the
meantime we can help here.
