You probably will want to install the "HP Proliant Support Pack" as it will
include the hpasm command line tools as well as a handy HP System Management
home page.  You can set it up to send you email alerts or send snmp traps to
a central server running the HP SIM software any time one of your hard
drives fails.  We use HP SIM in production to monitor both our Dell and HP
servers, and it works great.  I get an alert any time a RAID card or hard
drive has issues.
