Depends.

If it's a hardware RAID, your RAID card manufacturer probably has monitoring software that you'll find on their site or on the disks you got with your server.

If the RAID is made from Disk Management in Windows, you can use the event log for serious issues and the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic tools to check the health of each member disk.

HTH,
