nagios:: check status of virtual raid disks

The importance of checking your raid proactively can't be stressed. Getting errors on your physical Dell Raid volumes can mean life or death depending on how critical the volume is. I've created a check script that works with NRPE and uses Dell's omreport command line tool to gather the virtual drives per each controller and then displays their statuses. 

The file can be found on my public git repository,

A word of warning, make sure that you use the latest omreport from dell, as the older versions output differs from the later ones.
