  • ssacli program
  • sudo program

This module uses ssacli, which can only be executed by root. It uses sudo and assumes that it is configured such that the netdata user can execute ssacli as root without password.

Add to sudoers:

netdata ALL=(root)       NOPASSWD: /path/to/ssacli


hpssa is disabled by default. Should be explicitly enabled in python.d.conf.

If ssacli cannot be found in the PATH, configure it in hpssa.conf.
