Watches for and e-mails admins about GEOM/ZFS state changes
geomWatch is a program for monitoring the well-being of GEOM providers and ZFS pools. It checks the state of each configured provider and pool at a configured interval, and, if it notices that a component has been lost, or encounters a problem during the check, it will send an e-mail with details of the matter– such as what components were lost and which remain, or, in the event of a problem, what the problem was–to an arbitrary number of recipients, so that corrective action can be taken for example, replacing a failed disk.
