I have an ASUS PIKE 2208 ( this is LSI SAS2208 ROC ) configured and working with four physical drives. Additionally I have installed the LSI SNMP agent. The agent provides all the data defined by the LSI-MegaRAID-SAS-MIB.
However, I've noticed that after LSI MegaRAID SNMP agent is started the values (on Objects such as LSI-MegaRAID-SAS-MIB::temperatureROC.0) do not change over long or short periods of time. Put simply, values seem to remain the same once the snmp agent has started. However simply restarting the snmp agent seems to (sometimes) update the values.
Interestingly, if a consistency check or patrol read are performed, values from the SNMP agent seem to update (the drive temperature fluctuates both up and down - not just up as one may expect from increased disk activity).
I'm running Centos 6.5 with the following versions of the LSI MegaRAID software:
Agent:LSI MegaRAID SNMP Agent Ver 126.96.36.199 (Oct 30th, 2012) firmwareVersion = 23.16.0-0021:3.270.95-2635:Jul 12 2013:14:20:36 driverVersion = megaraid_sas:06.505.02.00
rpm -qa | grep sas kmod-megaraid_sas-v06.505.02.00_centos6.3-1.x86_64 sas_snmp-13.01-0300.x86_64 sas_ir_snmp-13.01-0300.x86_64
The MegaRAID MSM is MegaRAID_Storage_Manager-13.01.04-00.noarch
And MegaCli is MegaCli-8.02.16-1.i386
All of these packages are installed through the LSI provided packages. Any dependencies have been installed through yum, so they should be up to date.
I find it hard to believe that there are no temperature changes (not even \pm 1 degree) at all throughout a day (as the temperature of the environment is not nearly constant).
Everything else works properly so I find this odd. I should note that
snmpwalk -v 2c -c public localhost pdTemperature gives the same temperatures as
MegaCli64 -PDList -aALL | grep Temp - so where ever these utilities are obtaining their data from is consistent.
If anyone has seen this or solved this issue I would appreciate some insight as to why these values don't seem to update.
