RaidEye is a freeware, open source application for all Mac OS X users that want to keep a close eye on their RAID volumes.
RaidEye is a tool for monitoring Mac OS X software RAID volumes status. RaidEye is able to detect if a RAID volume has damaged or missing members, and can alert the user with a repeating sound and sending an email with a detailed report of RAID status.
