Monitoring HDD on megaraid SATA 150-6 controller

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I started a new job and no one seems to know much about a raid server that is in production.  This server was manufactured by a company that is no longer in business.  I wanted to find some monitoring software that would be able to send me an email alert if any of the HDDs in this server fail.  As it stands right now i don't know if all of the drives are working or not (from the LEDs on the front i am assuming everything is functional).  Please let me know if an expert out there knows of a free or inexpensive software package that can successfully monitor the drives in this server.  Thanks in advance for the help.
