I've never used RAID, but I'd imagine it's possible to find something
prebuilt that can monitor it.  I don't know whether smartd can be used
with RAID, but in non-RAID situations it can produce a daily report
about drive health status.  And I see there's a mdmonitor service listed
that describes itself as "software RAID monitoring and management" that
you might want to find out what it can do.

If it's still understandable, that's usually not a problem.

The usual reasons are things like your situation is beyond the
experience of other list members, or that someone familiar with it
hasn't seen your message *yet*.
