          Have you tried the USE_RAWDISK switch in orcallator.se  It was
          specifically to monitor  disks that were being missed.

Subject: orca charts recognize host bus adaptor attached disk

Hello all,

I've been using orca charts for a while to monitor several Sun E6000 and
E6500 systems. We recently got some new F6800 Sun-Fire systems and we are
attaching Compaq MA8000 disk arrays to them via Qlogic QLA2200 Host Bus
Adaptor (fibre) cards. I downloaded SE Toolkit 3.2.1 and I am using the July
version of orcallator.se that comes with it. SE Toolkit does not see the
fibre attached drives. I have  corresponded with Rich Pettit on this issue
but we have not come up with a way to deal with them yet. After poking
around, I determined that they are sd108, sd109, and sd110. I can find these
entries in kstat. They are configured as pseudo devices and show up in
/var/adm/messages and /kernel/drv/ldLite.conf. I'm wondering if there is a
workaround to get them into my orca charts. Is there some way to tweak
orcallator.se to use a file containing sd names so it can read kstat info
into the percol files for orca? I have some programming experience, but I'm
not an expert programmer by any means (I'm a sys admin, Jim, not a doctor).
Any suggestions?
