How to monitor RAID status on N54L?

I have an N54L with a Smart Array p212 RAID controller. The N54L has VMWare ESXi installed. Is there a way I can manually check the RAID controller and disk status, or any automated way I can monitor it (SNMP, etc)?

I figured this out. I downloaded the ESXi Offline Bundle from here:

 

http://vibsdepot.hp.com/hpq/apr2013/esxi-5x-bundles/hp-esxi5.0uX-bundle-1.4.5-3.zip

 

Then copied it to the ESXi data store and installed it from the command line:

 

esxcli software vib install -d /vmfs/volumes/datastore1/hp-esxi5.0uX-bundle-1.4.5-3.zip

 

After that I rebooted the ESXi server and the RAID health shows up under the vSphere client.
