2035       SMART RETURN STATUS. This makes allowance for SAT implementations
2036       (e.g. via USB) that truncate the SCSI sense buffer to 18 bytes.
2037       This truncation causes the SMART RETURN STATUS indication to be
2038       half health or unhealthy. If the half indication is used, then

2129
2130  [CF] Add parser to read drive database from a file. Add '-B' option
2131       to smartctl and smartd to specify database file name. File syntax
2132       is identical to the C/C++ syntax used to inialize the internal
2133       database array.
2134
2135  [CF] New syntax for drive database: Specify presets by strings
2136       with '-v' and '-F' options. Use empty strings instead of NULL.

2213       to dump any log page accessible via GP or SMART read log commands.
2214
2215  [CF] Enhance '-l directory' to print both GP and SMART Log directories.
2216       Add '-l directory[,gs]' modifiers to select GP or SMART log.

2253       - Added Samsung SP80A4H
2254       - Added Maxtor DiamondMax 21 STM3160215AS and STM3320620AS
2255       - Added Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 ST380819AS

2261
2262  [BA] Fix smartctl bug: when running in silent mode '-q errorsonly'
2263       do not print the Selective Self-test log.  Any errors will
2264       ALREADY appear in the SMART Self-test log.
2265
2266  [CF] Add missing 'const' and other minor fixes to prevent gcc warnings.
2267
2268  [OB] Added information message about supported Areca firmware versions.
2269       It's displayed in case the ATA device identification fails.
2270
2271  [CF] Add configuration file for Doxygen.
2272
2273  [CF] Add new object oriented interface to access ATA and SCSI devices.
2274       smartctl and smartd are modified to use the new classes in
2275       'dev_interface.{h,cpp}'. The template class in 'dev_tunnelled.h'
2276       is used in 'scsiata.cpp'. The code in 'dev_ata_cmd_set.{h,cpp}'
2277       supports migration from old function 'ata_command_interface()'.
2278       All existing 'os_*.cpp' modules should still work without any changes.
2279       The required adapter classes from 'dev_legacy.cpp' are automatically
2280       added by configure if necessary.
2281
2282  [BA] Updated smartd and smartctl and smartd.conf man-page documentation
2283       to reflect support for Areca SATA RAID controller cards.
2284
2285  [OB] Added support for Areca controllers to smartd. Extensive tests
2286       as well as documentation are still pending however.
2287
2288  [OB] Implemented device locking for Areca controllers in smartctl
2289
2290  [BA] Fixed selective self-test code.  Data structure revision number
2291       may be != 1 if no selective self-test has ever been run.  Host
2292       MUST set this value (at least at the first selective self-test
2293       instance).  Thanks to Curtis Stevens of WDC for clarification.
2294
2295  [MC] usbcypress autodetection
2296
2297  [BA] Starting to commit Areca code.  For now just smartctl.
2298       More changes and documentation coming soon.
2299       Need Areca firmware version 1.45 dated 10 June 2008 or later.
2300       May need changes in opening /dev/sg and file locking.
2301       Many thanks to Hank Wu!
2302
2303  [CF] smartd: Fix too small name buffer for 3ware with >100 devices.
2304
2305  [JH] now C++ Support for QNX Target
2306       already tested for QNX 6.3.2 on x86 and armle target
2307   
2308  [CF] Allow to set BUILD_INFO from make command line.
2309
2310  [CF] Windows: Add MSVC8 support, remove MSVC6 project files.
2311
2312  [MC] Add usbcypress device support for smartd.
2313
2314  [CF] Add output of latest CVS date/time stamp to version info.
2315       New file cvsversion.h is generated by Makefile.
2316       Move formatting of version info to utility.cpp.
2317
2318  [AR] Fix bug in 3ware node creation where nodes would be created
2319       then deleted, then recreated.
2320
2321  [BA] Add missing CCISS cvs version tags to '-V' printouts.
2322
2323  [TS] Linux: Ensure the 3ware device nodes are created with a correct
2324       SELinux security context.
2325
2326  [AR] Add support for up to 128 devices on 3ware controllers.
2327
2328  [CF] C++: Added new main() with exception handlers, replaced
2329       exit(x) with throw(x), removed global variable 'exitstatus'.
2330       Necessary for future changes, because exit() does not call
2331       any destructors.
2332
2333  [SS] FreeBSD: plug file descriptor leak in smartd (only happens with
2334       CISS devices).  Reported by Vadim Ostranitsyn.
2335
2336  [SS] FreeBSD: allow smartctl to interact with SCSI /dev/pass devices,
2337       thus enabling it to work with RAID controllers that expose disks
2338       via these devices.  From scottl@ via FreeBSD ports.
2339
2340  [MC] Add usbcypress device support for smartctl.
2341
2342  [KS] INSTALL on Solaris: updated description to use C++ compiler.
2343
2344  [KS] configure.in on Solaris: added options for Sun's compiler to
2345       suppress trivial warnings.
2346
2347  [KS] configure.in on Solaris: added direction to search suitable
2348       libraries for getaddrinfo().
2349
2350  [TS] smartd on Linux: remove forgotten return from deviceopen();
2351       SCSI device descriptors had the FD_CLOEXEC flag unset.
2352
2353  [CF] Added 'const' to avoid warning on depreciated string constant
2354       to 'char *' conversion.
2355
2356  [CF] autogen.sh: automake 1.10.1 is OK. Updated message texts.
2357
2358  [BA] removed smartmontools.spec file (now in CVS Attic).  This
2359       was not being used by RH or FC anyhow, and was out of
2360       date and not maintained.
2361
2362  [BA] smartd on Linux: sets FD_CLOEXEC on the opened device file
2363       descriptor.  The descriptor is otherwise leaked to other
2364       applications (mail sender) which may be considered a security
2365       risk and may result in AVC messages on SELinux-enabled systems.
2366       Thanks to: Tom�metana" <tsmetana@redhat.com>.
2367
2368  [BA] smartd: when sending email, to gather information about the
2369       host for the body of the email, eliminate gethostbyname()
2370       in favor of the IPv6-friendly function getaddrinfo() if the
2371       latter is available.  Info may be found here
2372       http://udrepper.livejournal.com/16116.html
2373       and here
2374       http://people.redhat.com/drepper/userapi-ipv6.html
2375       Thanks to: Tom�metana" <tsmetana@redhat.com>.
2376
2377       Smartmontools developers: please check that smartd still LINKS
2378       properly on your systems.
2379
2380  [BA] Fix ugly syntax bug in os_freebsd.cpp.  How did this go
2381       undetected for so long??
2382
2383SMARTMONTOOLS STABLE RELEASE 5.38 2008/03/10
2384
2385  [KS] Solaris/x86: modified configure.in for Sun's compiler.
2386
2387  [BA] smartd.initd.in addition from Erwan Velu <erwan@seanodes.com>
2388
2389  [BA] smartd fixes:
2390
2391       - On Linux, DEVICESCAN now automatically recognizes SATA devices
2392         behind libata, and SATA devices behind the Marvell driver, and
2393         treats them correctly.
2394
2395       - On Linux, a '-d sat' or '-d marvell' is automatically added
2396         if libata or the marvell driver are recognized behind a SCSI
2397         device type
2398
2399  [SS] (Maybe) fix attribute autosave in FreeBSD.
2400
2401  [SS] Major NetBSD-specific bugfixes:
2402       - handle actual SCSI and ATA errors and not only ioctl() errors;
2403       - set up I/O request properly for AUTO_OFFLINE and AUTOSAVE commands (inspired by
2404         similar change in os_freebsd.cpp);
2405       - handle AUTO_OFFLINE and AUTOSAVE like STATUS_CHECK (like os_linux.cpp does).
2406
2407  [GG] add kfreebsd gnu support to configure.in
2408
2409  [BA] Fix auto-offline support in FreeBSD.  Thanks to
2410       Cyrus Rahman <crahman@gmail.com> for the patch, and
2411       Eduard Martinescu for blessing it.
2412
2413  [DG] smartd re-opens "SCSI" devices as ATA devices if a SAT layer is
2414       detected (smartd bug IMO). In Linux this upsets scsi generic
2415       device nodes (e.g. /dev/sg0). Detect the re-open in os_linux.cpp
2416       and set the O_RDWR flag (ATA uses the O_RDONLY flag).
2417
2418  [CF] Drive database: Added Fujitsu MHW2 BH, Maxtor DiamondMax 17, 20, 21,
2419       Hitachi Travelstar 4K40, 5K120, 7K200, Deskstar 7K160, T7K500,
2420       T7K1000, Toshiba 1.8", Seagate Momentus 5400.3, 5400.3 ED, 7200.2,
2421       Barracuda 7200.11 and ES.
2422       Updated Toshiba 2.5", Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 and 7200.10.
2423       Added missing "(Hitachi )?" to Travelstar entries.
2424
2425  [CF] Drive database: Added several Western Digital Caviar and Scorpio
2426       drives, added Caviar RE EIDE family.
2427
2428  [CF] Drive database: Added Samsung P80 series with *-25 firmware.
2429
2430  [CF] Replaced 'head [-n] -1' by 'sed 1...' in autogen.sh to avoid
2431       portability issues.
2432
2433  [BA] Fixed autogen.sh script so that it uses 'grep -n 1' if 'grep -1'
2434       fails.  Needed for Mac OS X 10.4. Uck.
2435 
2436  [CF] Windows: Added IOCTL_STORAGE_PREDICT_FAILURE. This allows access
2437       to ATA SMART status and data if other calls do not work.
2438       Thanks to Jaroslaw Kowalski for pointing this out.
2439       Added support to use this function without admin rights.
2440
2441  [CF] Added ATA-8 revision 4c message text.
2442
2443  [CF] Added compiler.h to cciss_ioctl.h header check to prevent
2444       configure warning.
2445
2446  [SS] DragonFly support added (using os_freebsd code; untested).
2447
2448  [CF] smartctl: Fixed ATA identify byte swapping issue on big-endian
2449       platforms. This regression was introduced by the change for
2450       '-F swapid'. Thanks to Matthew Butch for bug report and testing.
2451
2452  [DG] SAT/SCSI: Improve SAT error processing code. Aborted commands from
2453       ATA devices (typically because SMART was disabled) were not being
2454       properly detected.
2455
2456  [GG] smartd: wait for the pid file to show up, return an error if it doesn't
2457
2458  [JH] fix bad return code (get STATUS) for QNX Part
2459
2460  [JH] initial porting to QNX Neutrino 6.3.2
2461       need at this time a prerelease devb-eide driver and libcam.so.2
2462       only tested for X86 Target, but devb-eide and lobcam.so.2 available for X86/ARM
2463       the officional driver coming soon with the next QNX release
2464       create two new source files os_qnxnto.[c..h]
2465
2466  [CF] smartd: Added option '-n, --no-fork' so that smartd works
2467       better with modern init methods. Thanks to Enrico Scholz
2468       for the patch from 2005-12-24.
2469
2470  [CF] Windows: Improved ATA/SCSI device type detection and
2471       DEVICESCAN. This also fixes a regression in 3ware DEVICESCAN.
2472
2473  [CF] smartd: Don't start self tests in first pass to avoid
2474       performance problems during boot.
2475       https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=192591
2476
2477  [CF] Fixed regression in SMART STATUS command on Win9x/ME.
2478
2479  [BA] Fixed 3ware issue with new controllers.  Documentation said
2480       that one could address up to 24 disks on a single controller,
2481       but in fact one was limited to 16 disks.  This is now fixed:
2482       up to 32 disks can be addressed.  Thanks to Adam Radford.
2483
2484       NOTE1: I have patched the Linux and FreeBSD code but not
2485       modified the Win32 code (it already supports up to 32 disks).
2486
2487       NOTE2: NOT TESTED ON LINUX.  Do not use this on a production box!
2488       I will remove this NOTE2 as soon as some positive test
2489       reports are recieved.
2490
2491       NOTE3: NOT TESTED ON FREEBSD. Do not use this on a production box!
2492       I will remove this NOTE3 as soon as some positive test
2493       reports are recieved.
2494
2495  [CF] Windows installer: Added explorer drive menu, CMD window,
2496       UBCD4Win plugin, smartd service update and other minor
2497       improvements.
2498
2499  [CF] Windows: Modified drive letter handling for explorer drive
2500       context menu: try SCSI if type is unknown, allow 'X:\.' syntax.
2501
2502  [CF] Windows: Added automatic ATA/SCSI device type detection and
2503       SCSI device scanning. The device names '/dev/sdX' and
2504       '/dev/pd<n>' now work for both ATA and SCSI disks.
2505
2506  [CF] smartctl: Added ability to parse '-r ataioctl,2' output from
2507       stdin ('-') and simulate the ATA commands for testing purposes.
2508
2509  [BA] SMART Attributes: added 187, 189, more accurate name for 190.
2510
2511  [CF] Windows: Added drive letters 'X:' as alternate disk device names.
2512
2513  [CF] smartctl: Added '-F swapid' to fix ATA identify string byte
2514       ordering. Added '-q noserial' to suppress serial number output.
2515
2516  [CF] Windows: Added '/dev/n?st<n>' as alternate device names for SCSI
2517       tapes. These names are also used by Cygwin's /dev emulation layer.
2518       Thanks to Corinna Vinschen (Cygwin project lead) for pointing this
2519       out.
2520
2521  [CF] Windows: Added IOCTL_SCSI_MINIPORT_*SMART* for commands not handled
2522       properly by SMART_IOCTL in disk class driver. This allows to use
2523       READ_LOG, WRITE_LOG and ABORT_SELFTEST even if the driver does not
2524       support ATA_PASS_THROUGH.
2525
2526  [CF] Added ATA-8 revision 4, fixed WRITE LOG '-r ioctl' output.
2527
2528  [BA] Updated smartctl and smartd so that they can be used with the latest
2529       3ware controllers which have 24 ports.  Also updated docs.
2530       Thanks to Tim Bell at CERN.
2531
2532  [GG] bit 4 in smartctl's return code might be set even when the dist check
2533       didn't return "DISK OK"
2534
2535  [CF] Drive database: added '-F samsung3' for Samsung P80 firmware
2536       BH100-35.
2537
2538  [SS] Applied patch from Dean Bennett to fix scheduled tests on
2539       Highpoint RAID controllers.
2540
2541  [BA] Added patch from Tejun Heo http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ide/13222/focus=13235
2542       to fix broken auto-offline and auto-save via libata.  Very clean fix: does it
2543       "the right way".  Thanks Tejun!
2544
2545  [CF] Added message text for ATA-7 self-test execution status 8
2546       ("... handling damage").
2547
2548  [GG] cciss: support more than 16 disks (patch taken from
2549       http://cciss.sourceforge.net/smartmontools_cciss_more_than_16_drives.patch
2550       and adjusted for smartd)
2551
2552  [DG] Solaris: [SCSI] add USCSI_RQENABLE flag to uscsi pass-through so
2553       sense buffer is made available. Expand reporting at this level.
2554
2555  [GK] Darwin: Improve handling of powered-down drives.
2556
2557  [SS] CCISS physical drive enumeration method changed (incompatibly).
2558
2559  [CF] Fixed smartd crash on missing '-s' directive argument.
2560
2561  [SS] Support CCISS on FreeBSD (kernel source is required until FreeBSD PR 109813
2562       is fixed).
2563
2564  [DG] SCSI/TAPE: some IBM tape drives don't react properly to a LOG
2565       SENSE with an allocation length of 4; work around for that case.
2566
2567  [CF] Applied Guido's patch to fix CCISS LUN array bounds check
2568       (openSUSE bug #239956) and remove trailing spaces in
2569       os_linux.cpp.
2570
2571  [CF] Fixed 64-bit compilation issue in SCT status struct.
2572
2573  [DG] SAT/SCSI: make real SCSI disks visible to DEVICESCAN in
2574       smartd again.
2575
2576  [CF] Fixed check of SCT temperature table size.
2577
2578  [CF] Added ATA-8 draft revisions, added SCT status format 3.
2579
2580  [CF] Drive database: added Samsung T166 series.
2581
2582  [CF] ATA: Added ',p' option for '-t scttempint,N' to make
2583       setting persistent.
2584
2585  [CF] ATA: Added '-t scttempint,N' option to set SCT temperature
2586       logging interval.
2587
2588  [CF] ATA: Added '-l scttemp[sts,hist]' options to print disk
2589       temperature information and history table provided by
2590       SMART Command Transport (SCT) Feature Set.
2591
2592  [CF] ATA: Added '-t selective,{redo,next,cont}' commands to
2593       perform tests based on the last ranges still stored on
2594       disk. Added 'N+SIZE' and 'N-max' format for LBA range
2595       specification.
2596
2597  [CF] Added Min/Max Temperature format used in attribute 190 of
2598       recent Maxtor disks (DiamondMax 20).
2599
2600  [CF] Linux: Added check for <linux/cciss_ioctl.h> to allow build
2601       (without CCISS support) also when this file is missing.
2602
2603  [CF] Added -F samsung3 option to correct firmware bug reporting
2604       completed self-tests as still in progress. Thanks to Manfred
2605       Schwarb for the patch.
2606
2607  [CF] Added missing const specifiers (undetected by gcc 3.4 and 4.X)
2608       to fix compilation with gcc 2.X.
2609
2610  [CF] Linux: compile fix for SuSE, config.h must be included first.
2611
2612smartmontools 5.37 Experimental Release
2613
2614  [CF] Windows: Added alternate method for (limited) monitoring of
2615       3ware controllers by parsing the output of CLI or 3DM.
2616       Either "tw_cli" can be run internally ("/dev/tw_cli/cx/py"),
2617       or data can be read from standard input ("/dev/tw_cli/stdin")
2618       or clipboard ("/dev/tw_cli/clip").
2619
2620  [DG] Remove linux specific libata detect code; rely on general SAT
2621       code. smartd should now generate a sensible log message for
2622       ATA devices behind a SAT layer on all architectures.
2623
2624  [BA] Increased max line length MAXLINELEN for /etc/smartd.conf from

2655       of linux/compiler.h and include in os_linux.h if
2656       present.  Thanks to SB.
2657
2658  [BA] smartd: DEVICESCAN will now pick up SATA/SAT devices
2659       attached to a SCSI device tree via SAT translation.
2660       Note: this is a bit of a hack.  I will document it once
2661       I know if this needs to be Linux only or can have more
2662       general application.
2663
2664  [BA] Added a couple SATA commands to the tables -- thanks DG!
2665       Phil -- how about going through and systematically adding
2666       these new commands to atacmdnames.cpp?
2667
2668  [BA] Linux s86_64: get rid of some compiler warnings on
2669       x86_64 Linux systems.
2670
2671  [CF] Windows: Added missing support for READ_LOG, ABORT_SELFTEST
2672       and CHECK_POWER_STATE for 3ware 9000 controllers. Thanks to
2673       Greg de Valois for implementing this new ioctl in the driver.
2674
2675  [PW] Drive database: added Seagate NL35 SATA family.  Thanks to Kai
2676       Harrekilde-Petersen for providing a patch.

2695
2696  [CF] Drive database: added Samsung P80 series, P120 series, SP8004H
2697       and T series.
2698
2699  [GG] Add CCISS (Compaq Smart Array Controller) support with contributions
2700       from Praveen Chidambaram, Douglas Gilbert, Guido Guenther and Fr�ric
2701       BOITEUX

2721
2722  [SZ] smartd: Support HighPoint RocketRAID controller under GNU/linux
2723
2724  [DG] [SCSI] First cut for '-l background' to show background scan
2725       results log

2728
2729  [KS] C++ compile fixes for Solaris with a few cleanups.
2730
2731  [BA] C++ compile fixes for Darwin (thanks to CF)
2732
2733  [CF] Removed old *.c files (now in CVS Attic).
2734
2735  [CF] Added changes for C++ to platform independent and Windows
2736       related files.
2737
2738  [BA] Tagged last .c Version with PRE_MOVE_TO_CPP. Copied *.c,v
2739       to *.cpp,v in CVS repository to preserve history of source
2740       files. Removed sm5_Darwin repository.
2741
2742  [CF] smartctl: Added -n option to skip checks when disk is in
2743       low-power mode.
2744
2745  [CF] Windows: Added alternate system call for power state check
2746       because the PASS THROUGH calls may spin up the disk.
2747
2748  [CF] smartd: Modified power state logging to report state changes
2749       instead of standby condition.
2750
2751  [CF] smartd: Ignore -n directive on scheduled self tests.
2752
2753  [DG] [SCSI] Make start stop cycle counter log page decoding
2754       more robust
2755
2756  [DG] Modify smartctl (but not smartd) to detect probable ATA
2757       devices behind a SAT layer. In the absence of an explicit
2758       device type, change to device type 'sat'.
2759
2760  [DG] Add indication that controller (device) type has been
2761       explicitly set. Preparation for automatic detection of
2762       'sat' device type unless user specifies a device type.
2763
2764  [SS] NetBSD: Deliver strings from ata_identify_device properly
2765       on little- and big-endian platforms.
2766
2767  [BA] Added published ANSI ATA-7 spec to list of recognized ATA
2768       versions.
2769
2770  [BA] Code janitor: added missing header strings for '-V' option.
2771
2772  [DG] [SATA] Extend 'sat' device type to allow either 12 or 16 byte
2773       variant of the SAT ATA PASS THROUGH SCSI command. Syntax is
2774       '-d sat,<n>' where <n> can be 0, 12 or 16 . The ',<n>' part
2775       is optional. Currently defaults to 16 byte variant but that
2776       could be made platform or even device dependent.
2777
2778  [DG] [SATA] Add new 'sat' device type for SATA disks behind a
2779       SCSI to ATA Translation (SAT) Layer (SATL). Uses the ATA
2780       PASS THROUGH (16) SCSI command thence the generic SCSI
2781       passthrough for each platform.
2782
2783  [CF] Windows: Added script and make targets to create installer
2784       with NSIS (http://nsis.sourceforge.net/)
2785
2786  [CF] Updated hostname and links for new SourceForge CVS service.
2787
2788  [CF] smartd: Added '-W' directive to track temperature changes
2789       and warn if temperature limits are reached.
2790
2791  [CF] Windows: Added IOCTL_ATA_PASS_THROUGH (Win2003, XP SP2)
2792       for commands unsupported by SMART_IOCTL. Added device
2793       specific options to select subset and ordering of the ATA
2794       IOCTLs actually used. These options are specified as
2795       modifiers of the device name (/dev/hd[a-j]:[saic]+)
2796
2797  [CF] Windows: Added support for drives 4-7 (/dev/hd[e-h]) via
2798       SMARTVSE.VXD on Win9x/ME. Thanks to Dariusz Rzonca for
2799       patch and testing.
2800
2801  [DG] [SCSI/SATA linux] from lk 2.6.17 SATA disk identification in
2802       libata will change. Expand LibAta detection to see old
2803       identifier and new variant (VPD page 0x83).
2804
2805  [BA] Identified Attribute 190 for Western Digital disks.  This
2806       stores temperature in Celsius, just like Attribute 194.
2807       But it has a failure threshold set to correspond to the
2808       maximum design operating temperature of the disk, which
2809       is 55 Celsius on the WD800JD drives that I studied.
2810       So if this Attribute has 'failed
2811       in the past' this means that the maximum disk operating
2812       temperature has been exceeded.
2813
2814  [GK] Darwin: Add support for AHCI drivers found in Intel-based Macs.
2815
2816smartmontools 5.36 Stable Release
2817

2823
2824  [DG] [SCSI] Loosen sanity check on Seagate/Hitachi factory information
2825       log page so it is not skipped on recent Seagate SCSI disks.
2826
2827  [CF] Added command 'smartd -q showtests' to list test schedules.
2828

2844  [BA] Updated docs and error message to reflect Linux libata
2845       support for smartmontools starting with the 2.6.15 kernel
2846       series. Also init script support for the 'tinysofa' release.
2847
2848  [DG] [SCSI] Mask dpofua bit when changing mode pages. Fix failure
2849       of 'smartctl -l error'.

2852
2853  [CF] Fixed a regexp in knowndrives table, added regexp syntax check
2854       via 'smartctl -P showall'.
2855
2856  [CF] Cygwin & Windows: Fixed memory leak in function calling
2857       IOCTL_IDE_PASS_THROUGH. Thanks to Fred Schmidt for the problem
2858       report.
2859
2860  [CF] Cygwin: added cygrunsrv support and commands "install", "remove"
2861       and "status" to smartd.initd.
2862
2863  [SS] Fix runtime problems on big-engian NetBSD platforms (patch provided
2864       by Martin Husemann)
2865
2866  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Open smartd.conf in textmode to allow use of
2867       Windows editors.
2868
2869  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Added option '--service' to allow smartd running

2872
2873  [CF] Windows: Added patch to avoid output of non-ascii timezone names.
2874
2875  [EM] Incorporate various patches to provide TWE support and support for
2876       multiple 3Ware cards, Power Check Support, and FreeBSD 6.x support.
2877       Thanks to Rudolf Cejka, Frank Behrens, and Jung-uk Kim.
2878
2879  [DG] Silence gcc 4.0.1 compile warning concerning the difference in
2880       "signedness" in pointer assignments. Changes to SCSI code
2881       and os_linux.c .
2882
2883  [PW] Additions to knowndrives table: added missing drive from Quantum
2884       Fireball Plus LM series, added QUANTUM BIGFOOT TS10.0A, added
2885       ExcelStor J680 and J880, added Western Digital Caviar RE Serial ATA
2886       series, added missing drives from Western Digital Caviar SE series,
2887       added Seagate Momentus 4200.2 series, added missing drives from

2902       IOCTL_IDE_PASS_THROUGH instead.
2903
2904smartmontools 5.34 Stable Release [NOTE: never officially released]
2905
2906  [CF] Cygwin & Windows smartd: Increased SCSI DEVICESCAN range
2907       from ASPI adapter 0-3 to 0-9. Added diagnostic messages.

2909  [CF] Windows smartd: Added ability to run .bat files via '-M exec'
2910       directive.
2911
2912  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Added FreeConsole() after fork() to avoid hang
2913       of terminated shell console window.
2914
2915  [DG] [SCSI] Add code so 'smartctl -A' outputs the number of elements
2916       in the grown defect list. When this number is increasing a
2917       disk has problems. N.B. Similar logic should be added to smartd.
2918
2919  [CF] Windows smartd: Fixed event handling to allow start of another
2920       smartd process when service is already running. Useful for testing
2921       service configuration changes in debug mode.

2931       to knowndrives table.
2932
2933  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALLP LM10.2 to knowndrives table.  Thanks to
2934       Mike Fleetwood for submitting the patch.
2935
2936  [KS] Solaris/SPARC: fixed not to disable automatic offline test and
2937       automatic save attributes incorrectly.  Thanks to Roy Badami.
2938
2939  [BA] Linux: smartd init script now recognizes 'trustix' distro.
2940
2941  [DG] [SCSI] Medium and hardware errors were slipping through
2942       unreported. Fix linux SCSI sense reporting via SG_IO ioctl.
2943
2944  [DG] [SCSI] Change lba of first failure in selftest output to
2945       decimal (was hex) to conform with ATA output.
2946
2947  [GK] smartd: Detect most self-test failures even if the hour counter
2948       has wrapped.
2949
2950  [BA] smartctl: list 'marvell' as option if user give invalid
2951       -d argument
2952
2953  [CF] Windows: fixed SCSI timeout handling to allow long timeouts
2954       for selftests.
2955
2956  [CF] Fixed buffer overflow issues in printone() and safe_vsnprintf()
2957       which results in crash on -V option (at least on Windows).
2958
2959  [DG] [SCSI] Add explicit timeouts to INQUIRY and REQUEST SENSE (that
2960       were missed in an earlier patch). Could have impacted freebsd.
2961
2962  [DG] When linux detects a sata_via_libata disk suggest that user try
2963       '-d ata' (rather then '-d libata). Anticipate kernel change.
2964
2965  [YD] Added OS/2 and eComStation platform support.
2966
2967  [PW] Added Seagate U4 family, Fujitsu MHJ and MHK families, Seagate
2968       Barracuda 5400.1, QUANTUM FIREBALLP KX27.3, QUANTUM FIREBALLP KA10.1,

2970
2971  [DG] [SCSI] After report of Hitachi IC35L073UCDY10 disks locking up
2972       on log page 0x7 (last n error events), check log page (and some
2973       others) is supported (via log page 0x0) before probing.
2974
2975  [CF] Added safe_v?snprintf() for platforms using v?snprintf()
2976       with non standard behaviour on overflow (Windows, old Linux)
2977
2978  [CF] smartd: Added message if check power mode spins up disk.
2979
2980  [CF] Windows: Added support for READ_LOG on WinNT4 using undocumented
2981       pseudo SCSI command via IOCTL_SCSI_PASS_THROUGH.
2982
2983  [CF] smartd: Added ',q' option for '-n' directive to suppress 'skipping
2984       checks' log message. This prevents a laptop disk from spinning up
2985       due to this message. Thanks to Rob MacLachlan and Manfred Schwarb
2986       for pointing out problem & solution.
2987
2988  [CF] Windows: Added function get_os_version_str() to show OS flavor in

2991  [CF] Windows: Added function ata_identify_is_cached() to check for outdated
2992       SMART enabled bit in identify data.
2993
2994  [CF] Windows: Added fix to prevent linkage of smartd specific win32 modules
2995       to smartctl.
2996
2997  [PW] Added Fujitsu MPG3153AH, Hitachi Endurastar J4K20/N4K20 (formerly
2998       DK23FA-20J), Seagate Momentus family, and Maxtor Fireball 3 family

3004  [CF] Windows: Added ATA check power mode for smartd -n directive.
3005
3006  [CF] Windows: Fixed use of new service status flag which causes hang
3007       of smartd service on WinNT4.
3008
3009  [CF] Windows: Fixed error checking of IOCTL_IDE_PASS_THROUGH (used
3010       for READ_LOG on 2000/XP). Added some diagnostic messages on
3011       -r ataioctl[,2]. Thanks to Manfred Schwarb for bug report and testing.
3012
3013  [BA] Fixed code bug that made it impossible to enable SMART on
3014       disks with failing health status.  This would happen if the
3015       os_*.c author made STATUS and STATUS_CHECK work the same way.
3016       I have corrected this at a higher level; we now handle the
3017       case where STATUS and STATUS_CHECK are identical without
3018       issues.
3019
3020  [LW] Make os_linux.c/marvell_command_interface() always return 0 on STATUS.
3021       Needed for a disk having bad SMART status.
3022
3023  [CF] smartctl: Added drive family printing.
3024
3025  [CF] autogen.sh: Allow automake 1.9, added message if automake
3026       version is unknown.
3027
3028  [BA] smartctl: use locale-specific separators for printing disk
3029       capacity.  Also use AC_CHECK_HEADERS not AC_CHECK_HEADER in
3030       configure.in.
3031
3032  [BA] clean-up of #include structure so that -V options to smartd
3033       and smartctl work correctly.  Please, don't #include header
3034       files into other header files.
3035
3036smartmontools 5.33 Experimental Release
3037
3038  [BA] smartctl: ATA disks, if SMART ATTRIBUTE THRESHOLDS page has ID
3039       errors with some Attributes having NULL IDs, print Attribute
3040       info anyway (but issuing a warning to the user).
3041
3042  [DG] [SCSI] Decode Last n error events log page; decode track following
3043       and positioning errors [Hitachi]
3044
3045  [EM] FreeBSD: another tweak, __packed__ introduced in Version 5.0040
3046
3047  [EM] Cleaner tweak of fixes for FreeBSD 4.x.

3050       and old GCC
3051
3052  [EM] Remove 3ware/FreeBSD specific files and just include pieces we need
3053
3054  [DG] Add logic in smartd to detect 3ware, Marvell controllers and SATA
3055       disks behind an ATA-SCSI simulator (in Linux). If specific device
3056       types are not given and they are picked in a general SCSI device
3057       scan then warn and skip.
3058
3059  [GG] insert correct path to smartd into smartd's init script
3060
3061  [BA] Changed all default paths in documentation to reflect /usr/local as
3062       default path prefix.  This affects on-line man pages, primarily.
3063 
3064  [DS] Added support for OpenBSD
3065
3066  [BA] Added another environment variable SMART_FULLMESSAGE set by
3067       the smartd mailing feature, and modified examplescripts/Example1
3068       to illustrate it.
3069
3070  [BA] Fixed potentially misleading messages of the form:
3071       XXX failed: success
3072
3073  [DG] emit warning if SATA disk detected using libata in Linux; then exit
3074
3075  [PW] Added Seagate U10 family, Hitachi Travelstar 7K60, Fujitsu MHR2020AT,
3076       and QUANTUM FIREBALLP AS20.5 to knowndrives table.
3077
3078  [DG] Detect 3ware and Marvell controllers from SCSI INQUIRY vendor string
3079       and suggest usage of appropriate '-d' argument in smartctl.
3080
3081  [LW] Tested the RELEASE_5_33_WITH_MARVELL_SUPPORT branch on
3082       actual Marvell 88SX5041 hardware, with success.
3083       Merged into HEAD.
3084
3085  [BA] Fixed nasty DEVICESCAN bug
3086
3087  [BA] Checked in RELEASE_5_33_WITH_MARVELL_SUPPORT branch with
3088       some Marvell support.
3089
3090  [BA] Additional modifications of Ed's controller scheme.  Fixed
3091       broken 3ware support under linux, problems with scanning
3092       devices in smartd, and other small problems.
3093
3094  [CF] Added make targets to build formatted man pages (htmlman, txtman),
3095       Windows distribution (dist-win32) and MSVC6 config.h (config-vc6).
3096
3097  [EM] Minor change to FreeBSD inclusion of 'twe' include files.  Add
3098       code to check if they exising in /usr/include/sys to use those
3099       in preference to ones added here
3100
3101  [EM] Very preliminary support attempt for 3Ware controllers under
3102       FreeBSD. Also, switched 'escalade_type/escalade_port' to
3103       'controler_type/controller_port' and moved away from
3104       'tryata/tryscsi' to using new 'controller*' variables to
3105       determine which controller type (ATA/SCSI/3Ware) to use.
3106
3107  [GK] Added initscript support for Darwin.
3108
3109  [CF] Windows smartd: Added ability to run smartd as a windows service,
3110       including new commands "smartd install ..." and "smartd remove"
3111       to install and remove the service registry entry.
3112
3113  [BA] smartd: warn user if -s regexp regular expression contains
3114       characters other than 0123456789.*()|+?[-]{}:=SLCO since such
3115       characters are 'suspicous' and may indicate a poorly formed
3116       regexp.  Extended regular expression gurus: can this list be
3117       reduced somewhat?
3118
3119  [CF] Fixed bug in Windows smartd: Missing close of config file when
3120       configuration is reloaded by smartd daemon.
3121
3122  [CF] Windows smartd: Added mail warning feature using the "Blat"
3123       (http://blat.sourceforge.net/) mailer as a default.
3124
3125  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 5120 Ultra ATA 33 series and TOSHIBA
3126       MK3017GAP to knowndrives table.
3127

3129       (libc < 6, Kernel 2.0.x).
3130
3131  [BA] Added ATA minor version identity strings for latest ATA specification
3132       updates: ATA/ATAPI-7 T13 1532D revision 4a and ATA/ATAPI-6 published,
3133       ANSI INCITS 361-2002
3134
3135  [PW] Added Hitachi Travelstar 5K80 family and Fujitsu MHTxxxxAH family to
3136       knowndrives table.
3137
3138  [EM] Fix up compilation under FreeBSD < 5.x
3139
3140  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALL EX3.2A and missing Western Digital Caviar SE
3141       drives to knowndrives table.
3142
3143  [BA] Modified Hitachi Travelstar 80GN family regexp in drive database.
3144       Thanks to [GK/CF] for problem & solution.
3145
3146  [GK] Added os_darwin.[ch]
3147
3148  [PW] Added the following drives to the knowndrives table: IBM Travelstar
3149       48GH, 30GN, and 15GN family; IBM Deskstar 37GP and 34GXP family;
3150       Western Digital WDC WD272AA; Maxtor DiamondMax D540X-4D family;
3151       TOSHIBA MK2016GAP, MK2018GAP, MK2018GAS, MK2023GAS; and
3152       QUANTUM FIREBALL ST3.2A
3153
3154  [BA] smartd/smarctl now print build HOST/OS information as part
3155       of startup slogan.  This should make it slightly easier to
3156       read bug reports from users.
3157
3158  [RZ] Fixed the DEVICESCAN to do what it was supposed to do - give
3159       error message unless scanning is in progress. 
3160
3161  [BA] Update documentation to describe 3ware character devices. Better
3162       error detection for missing/malfunctioning devices behind 3ware
3163       controllers. Now pack 3ware ioctl structures explicitly.
3164
3165  [BA] For ATA devices that support LBA mode, print capacity as part
3166       of smartctl --info
3167
3168  [RZ] Made DEVICESCAN quiet about non-existing devices unless debug
3169       is on.
3170
3171  [DG] treat "unit attention" SCSI warning as try again in some contexts
3172       (test unit ready and mode sense)
3173
3174  [BA] on drives that store max/min rather than min/max, get order
3175       correct in printing temp.
3176
3177  [BA] fixed typo in 'smartctl -h' output.  Thanks to Gabor Z. Papp.
3178
3179  [BA] linux: clean-up to 3ware/AMCC support; dynamically create
3180       or fix /dev/tw[ae][0-15] device node entries if they don't
3181       exist or are incorrect. One can now use the character devices
3182       /dev/twe[0-15] OR /dev/sd? for 3ware 6000/7000/8000 series
3183       cards.  One must use /dev/twa[0-15] for 3ware 9000 series cards.
3184       Note that selective self-tests now work via /dev/tw[ae] devices.
3185       Next step: documentation.
3186
3187  [BA] linux: experimental "support" for 3ware/AMCC 9000 series
3188       controllers that use the 3w-9xxx driver.  This will be in a
3189       state of flux for a few days.  Note that this requires the
3190       character interface /dev/twa[0-15].
3191
3192  [DG] linux: extend general SCSI OS interface to use the SG_IO ioctl. If
3193       not available, use the older SCSI_IOCTL_SEND_COMMAND ioctl.
3194
3195  [KS] Solaris/x86: fixed system identification problem in configure
3196       script.  Thanks to Stuart Swales.
3197
3198smartmontools 5.32
3199
3200  [BA] Update link to revised/updated IBM Deskstar Firmware
3201
3202  [CF] Cygwin & Windows: Added missing ASPI manager initialization
3203       with GetASPI32SupportInfo(). Thanks to Nikolai SAOUKH for pointing
3204       this out and providing a patch.
3205
3206  [BA] modified smartd init script to work on whitebox (thanks to
3207       Michael Falzon)
3208
3209  [BA] removed (reverted) additional Attribute definitions from
3210       http://smart.friko.pl/attributes.php.  All (or most?) of these
3211       appear to be return code values for the WD Digital Life Guard Utility.
3212
3213  [PW] Added Seagate Medalist 17242, 13032, 10232, 8422, and 4312 to
3214       knowndrives table.  Added missing Seagate U Series 5 drives.
3215
3216  [PW] Added the following QUANTUM models to knowndrives table:
3217       FIREBALL EX6.4A, FIREBALLP AS10.2, FIREBALLP AS40.0, FIREBALL CR4.3A,
3218       FIREBALLP LM15, FIREBALLP LM30, and FIREBALLlct20 30
3219
3220  [PW] Added missing Western Digital Protege drives to knowndrives table.
3221
3222  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax 40 ATA 66 series and DiamondMax 40 VL Ultra
3223       ATA 100 series to knowndrives table.
3224
3225  [PW] Added the following Hitachi/IBM drives to knowndrives table:
3226       HITACHI_DK14FA-20B, Travelstar 40GNX series, Travelstar 4LP series,
3227       and Travelstar DK23XXB series.  Added the missing Travelstar 80GN
3228       drives.
3229
3230  [PW] Added Fujitsu MPB series and MPG series to knowndrives table.  Added
3231       the missing Fujitsu MHSxxxxAT drives.
3232
3233  [KS] Solaris: added workaround for dynamic change of time-zone.
3234
3235  [KS] Solaris: fixed problem that autogen.sh cannot detect absence of
3236       auto* tools.
3237
3238  [BA] smartd: added time-zone bug information to man page.
3239       Reverted CF code for _WIN32 case.
3240
3241  [CF] Cygwin & Windows: Added better error messages on IDE/ATA device
3242       open error.
3243
3244  [BA] added additional Attribute definitions from
3245       http://smart.friko.pl/attributes.php
3246
3247  [BA] smartd: reworked TimeZone bug workaround so it is only invoked
3248       for glibc.  Note: this might not be right -- a similar bug may
3249       exist in other platform's libcs.
3250
3251  [DG] SCSI smartmontools documentation updated [2004/5/6]. See:
3252       http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/smartmontools_scsi.html
3253
3254  [CF] Windows: Fixed reset of TZ=GMT in glibc timezone bug workaround.
3255
3256smartmontools 5.31
3257
3258  [DG] move SCSI device temperature and start-stop log page output
3259       (smartctl) into --attributes section (was in --info section).
3260
3261  [GG] change default installation location to /usr/local
3262
3263  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Fixed crash on access of SCSI devices after fork().
3264
3265  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK4018GAS and the following Maxtor drive families
3266       to knowndrives table: DiamondMax D540X-4G, Fireball 541DX,
3267       DiamondMax 3400 Ultra ATA, DiamondMax Plus 6800 Ultra ATA 66.
3268
3269  [PW] Added missing Maxtor DiamondMax 16, DiamondMax D540X-4K, and
3270       DiamondMax Plus 45 Ulta ATA 100 drives to knowndrives table.
3271
3272  [PW] Added ExcelStor J240, Hitachi Travelstar 80GN family, Fujitsu
3273       MHTxxxxAT family, and IBM Deskstar 25GP and 22GXP families to
3274       knowndrives table.
3275
3276  [CF] Cygwin smartd: Added workaround for missing SIGQUIT via keyboard:
3277       To exit smartd in debug mode, type CONTROL-C twice.
3278
3279  [BA] smartctl: printing of the selective self-test log is now
3280       controlled by a new option: -l selective
3281
3282  [BA] Added entries for Samsung firmware versions -25 to -39 based
3283       on latest info about firmware bug fixes.
3284
3285  [PW] Added Seagate U Series X family, Seagate U8 family, and Seagate
3286       Medalist 8641 family to knowndrives table.
3287
3288  [CF] smartd: Added exit values 5/6 for missing/unreadable config file.
3289
3290  [BA] smartd: now monitor the Current Pending Sector count (Attribute 197)
3291       and the Offline Pending Sector Count (Attribute 198).  Log a
3292       warning (and send an email, if so configured) if the raw count
3293       is nonzero.  These are controlled by new Directives: -C and -U.
3294       Currently they are enabled by default.
3295
3296  [CF] Added option -c FILE, --configfile=FILE to smartd to specify
3297       an alternate configuration FILE or '-' for standard input.
3298
3299  [KS] configure.in now searches for -lnsl and -lsocket for Solaris.
3300
3301  [CF] Win32/native smartd: Added thread to combine several syslog output
3302       lines into one single event log entry.
3303
3304  [CF] Win32 smartd: Added DEVICESCAN for SCSI/ASPI devices.
3305
3306  [GG] Use gethostbyname() the get the DNS domain since getdomainname()
3307       returns the NIS domain when sending mails from smartd.
3308
3309  [GG] smartd.init.in: pass smartd_opts to smartd on startup, read distribution
3310       specific configuration files if found
3311
3312  [SS] smartctl: added NetBSD support for Selective Self-tests.
3313
3314  [BA] smartd.conf example configuration file now has all examples
3315       commented out except for 'DEVICESCAN'.
3316
3317  [CF] Win32/native smartd: Added ability to display warning "emails"
3318       as message box by "-m msgbox" directive. With "-m sysmsgbox",
3319       a system modal (always on top) message box is shown.
3320
3321  [BA] smartctl: printing of self-test log for disks that support
3322       Selective self-testing now shows the status of the (optional)
3323       read-scan after the selective self test.  Also, changed format
3324       in printing self-test log to print failing LBA in base 10 not
3325       base 16 (more compatible with kernel error messages).  Also,
3326       in printing SMART error log, print timestamps in format
3327       days+hours+minutes+seconds.
3328
3329  [CF] Win32 smartd: Added ability to log to stdout/stderr
3330       (-l local1/2). Toggling debug console still works
3331       if stdout is redirected.
3332
3333  [BA] smartctl: selective self-test log, print current status
3334       in a  more detailed way.  Allow writing of selective self-test
3335       log provided that no other self-test is underway.
3336
3337  [BA] Linux: eliminated dependency on kernel tree hdreg.h.
3338
3339  [BA] smartctl: -l selftest option now prints Selective self-test
3340       log in addition to the normal self-test log.
3341       Added additional options (-t pending, -t afterselect) to
3342       control remaining Selective Self-test capabilities.  Tested
3343       with several Maxtor disks. Modified error message printing
3344       so that munged option messages print at the end not the
3345       start of output.
3346
3347  [CF] Added daemon support to Win32 native version of smartd.
3348       The daemon can be controlled by commands similar to initd
3349       scripts: "smartd status|stop|reload|restart|sigusr1|sigusr2".
3350
3351  [CF] Added minor support for option "-l local[0-7]" to Win32 native
3352       (not Cygwin) version of smartd. If specified, the log output
3353       is written to file "./smartd[1-7]?.log" instead of event log.
3354
3355  [BA] Added Selective Self-test to smartctl (-t selective,M-N).
3356       Currently only supported under Linux; Solaris, NetBSD, FreeBSD
3357       and Windows developers must add WRITE LOG functionality to
3358       os_*.c
3359
3360  [BA] Added workaround for an annoying glibc bug: if you change
3361       timezones, (eg, flying with a laptop from USA to Europe)
3362       localtime() does not notice this in a running
3363       executable, so time that appears in the system log (syslog!)
3364       will be incorrect.  See
3365       http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=48184
3366       for additional examples of this bug.
3367
3368  [DG] Set explicit timeouts for SCSI commands (most default to 6 seconds).
3369       Previously a 0 second timeout was meant to be interpreted as a
3370       default timeout but the FreeBSD port had a problem in this area.
3371
3372  [CF] Fixed un-thread-safe exit signal handler for Win32
3373
3374  [BA] Fixed un-thread-safe exit signal handler pointed out
3375       by CF.
3376
3377  [BA] Changed configure script to eliminate warnings under
3378       Solaris from sys/int_type.h conflicts with int64.h
3379       Added header files for umask to smartd.c.
3380
3381  [BA] Man page format change from Werner LEMBERG.  " " changed to \&
3382
3383  [CF] Added os_win32/syslogevt.* event message file tool for Win32
3384       smartd (native+cygwin). May also be useful for other cygwin
3385       programs writing to syslog().
3386
3387  [CF] Added Win32 version of smartd
3388
3389  [CF] Merged RELEASE_5_26_WIN32_BRANCH
3390
3391  [BA] Made some changes to man page markup suggested by
3392       Richard Verhoeven to work around bugs in man2html.
3393       Tested not to break anything under Linux and Solaris.
3394
3395  [CF] Moved PrintOut() from utility.c to smart{ctl,d}.c to avoid
3396       syslog() output of smartctl.
3397
3398  [BA] Grew worried that some time-zone names could be very long (eg,
3399       Mitteleuropaische Zeit) and put date string lengths into a
3400       single macro in utility.c
3401
3402  [EM] Updated os_freebsd.c to handle older versions of FreeBSD in a
3403       more appropriate/obvious fashion.
3404
3405  [EM] Modified autogen.sh as FreeBSD installs automake 1.7 as
3406       'automake17' and NOT 'automake-1.7'
3407
3408smartmontools 5.30
3409
3410  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALLlct15 30, QUANTUM FIREBALLlct20 40, and
3411       Maxtor 6Y060P0 (DiamondMax Plus 9 60GB) to knowndrives table.
3412
3413  [PW] Added Maxtor MaXLine II family to knowndrives table (thanks to
3414       Brett Russ for submitting the patch).
3415
3416  [BA] Added remaining read/write commands to detailed list of
3417       error log commands that have text descriptions of problem
3418       printed.  For commands that support it, print number of failed
3419       sectors at problem LBA.
3420
3421  [BA] Made SuSE section of smartd init script more SuSE 9 compatible.
3422       Thanks to Hans-Peter Jansen.
3423
3424  [CF] Windows smartd: Added IDE/ATA device scan
3425       Added windows device names to smartctl.8.in, smartd.8.in
3426   
3427  [BA] smartctl/smartd: user-provided '-F samsung' and '-F samsung2'
3428       command line options/Directives did NOT over-ride preset values
3429       unless user specified '-P ignore'.  Now they will always over-ride
3430       preset values from the database.
3431
3432  [BA] Added error decoding for a few more READ and WRITE commands.
3433
3434  [PW] Added Maxtor MaXLine Plus II, Western Digital Caviar SE (Serial ATA)
3435       series, Hitachi Deskstar 7K250 series, and Ultra ATA 66 models of
3436       the Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 40 series to knowndrives table.
3437
3438  [BA] Added Maxtor Diamondmax 250 GB drives to database.  Note that
3439       these model numbers are not listed in Maxtor documentation, but
3440       they exist.
3441
3442  [BA] Removed the 'contact developers' phrase from the Samsung disk
3443       warning messages.
3444
3445  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK2017GAP, IBM Deskstar 14GXP and 16GP series,
3446       Fujitsu MPC series, Seagate Barracuda ATA III family, and missing
3447       Seagate Barracuda U Series drives to knowndrives table
3448
3449  [BA] smartd: wrong loglevel for message: Configuration file
3450       /etc/smartd.conf parsed.  Changed to LOG_INFO from LOG_CRIT.
3451       Thanks to  Emmanuel CHANTREAU for the report.
3452
3453  [CF] Checked in development version of windows code base.
3454
3455smartmontools 5.29 (note: there was NO 5.28 release)
3456
3457  [BA] smartd: configure script did not set correct directory to search for
3458       smartd.conf based on --prefix argument to ./configure.  Thanks to
3459       GG for identifying the problem and fix.
3460
3461  [BA] make clean now removes man pages (generated from *.in) files as well
3462       as object files.
3463
3464  [EM] Correct copying of sense data in FreeBSD SCSI implementation. Thanks
3465       to Sergey Svishchev for noticing the bug.
3466
3467  [BA] On solaris, wrong warning message if no ATA support.  Warning message
3468       concerns 3ware controller, not ATA.
3469
3470  [SS] Added SCSI support for NetBSD.
3471
3472  [BA] on big-endian linux machines, fixed interpretation of HDIO_GET_IDENTITY
3473       to correctly identify ATAPI bit (was byte swapped).  This should
3474       eliminate some SYSLOG noise if user queries a packet device (eg, CD
3475       ROM or DVD reader).
3476
3477  [PW] Removed warning for IBM Deskstar 40GV & 75GXP series drives with
3478       A5AA/A6AA firmware.  Thanks to Gerald Schnabel.
3479
3480  [PW] Added Toshiba TOS MK3019GAXB SUN30G to knowndrives table
3481
3482  [PW] Added Western Digital Caviar AC12500, AC24300, AC25100, AC36400,
3483       and AC38400 to knowndrives table
3484
3485  [BA] When printing ATA error log, print the LBA at which READ
3486       or WRITE commands failed.
3487
3488  [BA] Changed syntax of error message in smartctl
3489
3490  [BA] Added versioning info (-V options to smartd/smartctl) for
3491       Solaris ATA module.
3492
3493smartmontools 5.27
3494
3495  [KS] Added ATA/IDE support for Solaris/SPARC (ATA/IDE not yet for
3496       Solaris/x86).
3497
3498  [BA] 3ware controllers: documented that one can monitor any of the
3499       physical disks from any of the 3ware /dev/sd? logical devices.
3500       Better warnings if querying a disk that does not exist.
3501
3502  [PW] Added Hitachi Travelstar DK23DA series, Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 40
3503       series, Western Digital Caviar WDxxxAA, WDxxxBA, and WDxxxAB series
3504       to knowndrives table
3505
3506  [BA] missing 'pragma pack' on ATA IDENTIFY DEVICE structure may have
3507       caused odd or incorrect results on 64-bit machines.
3508
3509  [BA] smartctl/smartd allow inspection of self-test and error logs even
3510       if disk firmware claims that these don't exist.  This is needed
3511       for some Maxtor disks whose firmware does not indicate log support
3512       even though the disk DOES support it.
3513
3514  [BA] Improved porting instructions and documentation in os_generic.c
3515
3516  [PW] Add Western Digital Caviar WD136AA and SAMSUNG SP40A2H (RR100-07
3517       firmware) to knowndrives table.
3518
3519  [EM] FreeBSD: remove extra definition of FreeNonZero
3520
3521  [BA] smartctl: the -q silent option was printing output for some
3522       error conditions.  Fixed.  Will rename relevant variables to help
3523       avoid these errors in the future.
3524
3525  [SS] NetBSD port added.
3526
3527  [BA] more sensible error messages for devfs and devfs-like systems.
3528       Instead of saying that the DIRECTORY does not exist, say that
3529       the DEVICE does not exist.
3530
3531  [BA] smartd: added -n Directive, to prevent disk spin-up depending
3532       upon the power mode (SLEEP, STANDBY, or IDLE).
3533
3534  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax 20 VL series, Fujitsu MPF series,
3535       Maxtor DiamondMax 36 series, Maxtor DiamondMax 4320 series, and
3536       Maxtor DiamondMax 536DX series to knowndrives table.
3537
3538  [BA] many warning messages now give the file name AND VERSION
3539
3540  [BA] smartd: when the user provides multiple address recipients
3541       to the '-m' Directive in a comma-delineated list, the commas
3542       are stripped out before passing the list of addresses to the
3543       mailer program. (Thanks to Calin A. Culianu for pointing this out
3544       and providing a patch.)
3545
3546  [BA] smartd: when the '-M exec path' Directive is used, any stdout OR
3547       stderr output from the executable "path" is assumed to indicate a
3548       problem, and is echoed to SYSLOG.
3549
3550  [BA] Added all missing IBM/Hitachi Deskstar 180GXP models to knowndrives
3551       table.
3552
3553  [PW] Added some missing IBM/Hitachi Deskstar 120GXP models to knowndrives
3554       table.
3555
3556  [PW] Added IBM Travelstar 14GS to knowndrives table.
3557
3558  [PW] Modified knowndrives table to match entire Hitachi Travelstar
3559       DK23BA and DK23EA series of drives (thanks to Norikatsu Shigemura
3560       for submitting the patch).
3561
3562  [PW] Added some missing Fujitsu MPE series drives to knowndrives table.
3563
3564  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK4019GAX, TOSHIBA MK6409MAV, and QUANTUM
3565       FIREBALLlct15 20 to knowndrives table.
3566
3567  [EM] Fixup example command output for FreeBSD
3568
3569  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax 80 family to knowndrives table.
3570
3571  [EM] Catch up FreeBSD code to switch PROJECTHOME to PACKAGE_HOMEPAGE
3572       macros.
3573
3574  [BA] smartd: now watches stdout/stderr when trying to run mail, mailx
3575       or mail warning script, and reports any output to SYSLOG.  This
3576       gives a clearer error message if something is wrong.
3577
3578  [BA] smartd: Solaris init script modified to accomodate grep that
3579       lacks '-q' quiet option.  Also check for running process to kill
3580       on stop.
3581
3582  [PW] Added some missing Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 and 7200.7 Plus drives
3583       to knowndrives table.
3584
3585  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 60 family and Seagate U Series 5 20413
3586       to knowndrives table.
3587
3588  [BA] smartd: under Solaris, made default mailer be 'mailx' not
3589       'mail', since Solaris 'mail' does not accept a '-s' argument.
3590       A workaround for Solaris users of earlier versions is to
3591       have '-M exec /bin/mailx' in their smartd.conf config file.
3592
3593  [DG] some SCSI controllers don't like odd length transfers so make
3594       sure LOG SENSE transfers are rounded up to an even number when
3595       and odd length is reported (i.e. there is a double fetch, the
3596       first to find the length, the second gets the data)
3597
3598  [BA] smartd man pages: under Solaris, correct section numbers in the
3599       'See also' section.
3600
3601  [KS/BA] smartd man page: describe how to set Solaris syslog.conf
3602       file to catch all messages.  Give correct Solaris SYSLOG default
3603       path /var/adm/messages in man pages.
3604
3605  [BA] smartd: incorporated Debian startup script submitted by user.
3606
3607  [BA] smartctl: modified printing of self-test log entry number.  Seagate
3608       firmware can leave 'holes' in the self-test log while a test is
3609       actually running.  We now print entry numbers consistently in this
3610       case, not assuming that entries are contiguous.
3611
3612  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALL CX10.2A and Western Digital Caviar AC23200L
3613       to knowndrives table.
3614
3615  [PW] Added QUANTUM FIREBALLlct20 20 to knowndrives table.
3616
3617  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus D740X family to knowndrives table.
3618
3619  [PW] Added IBM Travelstar 32GH, 30GT, and 20GN family to knowndrives
3620       table.
3621
3622  [BA] Slackware init script modified to search for /etc/slackware-version
3623       rather than /etc/slackware-release.
3624
3625  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda ATA II family and TOSHIBA MK4019GAXB to
3626       knowndrives table.
3627
3628  [GG] explain howto use autoreconf in autogen.sh
3629
3630  [KS] Makefile.am/configure.in: changed manual page sections for
3631       Solaris.
3632
3633  [BA] smartd: reduced number of scheduled self-test messages if
3634       test already run in current hour.
3635
3636  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 8 family to knowndrives table.
3637
3638  [BA] linux: check for linux/hdreg.h.  If it's there, use it. If
3639       not, provide the necessary definitions ourselves.
3640
3641  [PW] Removed warning for IBM Deskstar 40GV & 75GXP series drives
3642       with TXAOA5AA firmware
3643
3644  [PW] Added IBM Travelstar 25GS, 18GT, and 12GN family to knowndrives
3645       table.
3646
3647  [PW] Added IBM/Hitachi Travelstar 60GH & 40GN family to knowndrives
3648       table.
3649
3650  [BA] smartd: made '-s' Directive more efficient.  Now store
3651       compiled regex, and re-use.  If device lacks certain self-test
3652       capabilities, track it and don't try again.
3653
3654  [BA] smartd: made memory allocation for device lists completely
3655       dynamic (eliminating compile-time maximum length constants).
3656
3657  [PW] Removed warning for SAMSUNG SP0802N with TK100-23 firmware
3658
3659  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda ATA IV family to knowndrives table.
3660
3661  [BA] smartd: reduce per-device memory footprint by making
3662       mail-warning info dynamically allocated.  Also remove
3663       potential memory leak if use has -m Directive twice and
3664       keeps reloading the config file (highly unlikely this would
3665       ever be noticed!) 
3666
3667  [DG] smartd: added SCSI scheduled self-tests (Background
3668       short or extended).
3669
3670  [BA] smartd: can now run scheduled offline immediate and
3671       self-tests.  See man page and -s Directive for details.
3672
3673  [GG] don't include manpages in make-dist-tarball.
3674
3675  [BA] smartctl: on-line examples given with -h are now correct
3676       for solaris and linux, but wrong for freebsd.  Ed?
3677
3678  [BA] smartd: man page now explains device scanning for solaris as
3679       well as linux and freebsd.
3680
3681  [BA] smartd/smartctl: man pages now report correct CVS tag release
3682       date, and executables '-V' options reports more build info.
3683
3684smartmontools 5.26
3685
3686  [BA] Improved user messages that appear from 'make install'
3687
3688  [PW] Removed warning for SAMSUNG SP1213N with firmware TL100-23
3689
3690  [BA] incorporated SuSE init script from user.
3691
3692  [DG] if SCSI device is read only, then open it read only.
3693
3694  [BA] when compiled on non-supported system (NOT linux, freebsd or solaris) then
3695       the run-time error messages now clearly say 'your system is not supported'
3696       and give clear directions.
3697
3698  [BA] ./configure script now works correctly on SuSE linux boxes
3699
3700  [BA] minor improvements to man pages
3701
3702  [BA] simplified detection of packet (ATAPI, CD) devices.
3703
3704  [BA] init script (redhat, mandrake, yellowdog) now uses correct
3705       strings for translation and is slightly more standard.
3706
3707  [DG] smartctl: output scsi Seagate vendor pages for disks (not tapes)
3708
3709smartmontools 5.25
3710
3711Note: there was no '5.24' release. From this point on, even numbered
3712releases will be 'stable' ones and odd numbered releases will be
3713unstable/testing/development ones.
3714
3715  [DG] smartd/smartctl: changed scsiClearControlGLTSD() to
3716       scsiSetControlGLTSD() with an 'enabled' argument so '-S on'
3717       and '-S off' work for SCSI devices (if changing GLTSD supported).
3718
3719  [BA] smartd/smartctl: wired in scsiClearControlGLTSD(). Could still
3720       use a corresponding Set function.  Left stubs for this purpose.
3721
3722  [DG] scsicmds: added scsiClearControlGLTSD() [still to be wired in]
3723
3724  [BA] smartctl: make SCSI -T options behave the same way as the
3725       ATA ones.
3726
3727  [DG] smartctl: output scsi transport protocol if available
3728
3729  [DG] scsi: stop device scan in smartd and smartctl if badly formed
3730       mode response [heuristic to filter out USB devices before we
3731       (potentially) lock them up].
3732
3733  [BA] smartd: deviceclose()->CloseDevice(). Got rid of SCSIDEVELOPMENT
3734       macro-enabled code.  Added -W to list of gcc specific options to
3735       always enable. Made code clean for -W warnings.
3736
3737  [PW] Added Maxtor DiamondMax VL 30 family to knowndrives table.
3738
3739  [DG] scsi: add warning (when '-l error' active) if Control mode page
3740       GLTSD bit is set (global disable of saving log counters)
3741
3742  [DG] scsi: remember mode sense cmd length. Output trip temperature
3743       from IE lpage (IBM extension) when unavailable from temp lpage.
3744
3745  [BA] smartd: for both SCSI and ATA now warns user if either
3746       the number of self-test errors OR timestamp of most
3747       recent self-test error have increased.
3748
3749  [DG] smartctl: output Seagate scsi Cache and Factory log pages (if
3750       available) when vendor attributes chosen
3751
3752  [DG] smartd: add scsiCountFailedSelfTests() function.
3753
3754  [DG] Do more sanity checking of scsi log page responses.
3755
3756  [BA] smartd: now warns user if number of self-test errors has
3757       increased for SCSI devices.
3758
3759  [BA] smartd: warn user if number of ATA self-test errors increases
3760       (as before) OR if hour time stamp of most recent self-test
3761       error changes.
3762
3763  [DG] More checks for well formed mode page responses. This has the side
3764       effect of stopping scans on bad SCSI implementations (e.g. some
3765       USB disks) prior to sending commands (typically log sense) that
3766       locks them up.
3767
3768  [PW] Added Western Digital Caviar family and Caviar SE family to
3769       knowndrives table.
3770
3771  [BA] smartd: added -l daemon (which is the default value if -l
3772       is not used).
3773
3774  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda ATA V family to knowndrives table.
3775
3776  [BA] smartd: added additional command line argument -l FACILITY
3777       or --logfacility FACILITY.  This can be used to redirect
3778       messages from smartd to a different file than the one used
3779       by other system daemons.
3780
3781  [PW] Added Seagate Barracuda 7200.7, Western Digital Protege WD400EB,
3782       and Western Digital Caviar AC38400 to knowndrives table.
3783
3784  [BA] smartd: scanning should now also work correctly for
3785       devfs WITHOUT traditional links /dev/hd[a-t] or /dev/sd[a-z].
3786 
3787  [PW] Added Maxtor 4W040H3, Seagate Barracuda 7200.7 Plus,
3788       IBM Deskstar 120GXP (40GB), Seagate U Series 20410,
3789       Fujitsu MHM2100AT, MHL2300AT, MHM2150AT, and IBM-DARA-212000
3790       to knowndrives table.
3791
3792  [PW] Added remaining Maxtor DiamondMax Plus 9 models to knowndrives
3793       table.
3794
3795  [EM] smartd: If no matches found, then return 0, rather than an error
3796       indication, as it just means no devices of the given type exist.
3797       Adjust FreeBSD scan code to mirror Linux version.
3798
3799  [BA] smartd: made device scan code simpler and more robust. If
3800       too many devices detected, warn user but scan as many
3801       as possible.  If error in scanning, warn user but don't
3802       die right away.
3803
3804  [EM] smartd: To keep as consistent as possible, migrate FreeBSD
3805       devicescan code to also use glob(3). Also verified clean
3806       compile on a 4.7 FreeBSD system.
3807
3808  [BA] smartd: Modified device scan code to use glob(3). Previously
3809       it appeared to have trouble when scanning devices on an XFS
3810       file system, and used non-public interface to directory
3811       entries. Problems were also reported when /dev/ was on an
3812       ext2/3 file system, but there was a JFS partition on the same
3813       disk.
3814
3815  [BA] Clearer error messages when device scanning finds no suitable
3816       devices.
3817
3818  [EM] FreeBSD: Fixup code to allow for proper compilation under
3819       -STABLE branch.
3820
3821smartmontools 5.23
3822
3823  [BA] smartd: didn't close file descriptors of ATA packet devices
3824       that are scanned. Fixed.
3825
3826  [BA] Added reload/report targets to the smartmontools init script.
3827       reload: reloads config file
3828       report: send SIGUSR1 to check devices now
3829
3830smartmontools 5.22
3831
3832  [EM] Fix compile issues for FreeBSD < 5-CURRENT.
3833
3834  [PW] Added Fujitsu MHM2200AT to knowndrives table.
3835
3836  [BA] To help catch bugs, clear ATA error structures before all
3837       ioctl calls.  Disable code that attempted to time-out on SCSI
3838       devices when they hung (doesn't work).
3839 
3840  [BA] Documented STATUS/ERROR flags added by [PW] below.
3841
3842  [BA] Improved algorithm to recognize ATA packet devices. Should
3843       no longer generate SYSLOG kernel noise when user tries either
3844       smartd or smartctl on packet device (CD-ROM or DVD).  Clearer
3845       warning messages from smartd when scanning ATA packet device.
3846
3847  [PW] Added TOSHIBA MK4025GAS to knowndrives table.
3848
3849  [PW] Added a textual interpretation of the status and error registers
3850       in the SMART error log (ATA).  The interpretation is
3851       command-dependent and currently only eight commands are supported
3852       (those which produced errors in the error logs that I happen to
3853       have seen).
3854
3855  [BA] added memory allocation tracking to solaris code.
3856       Fixed solaris signal handling (reset handler to default
3857       after first call to handler) by using sigset. Added
3858       HAVE_SIGSET to configure.in
3859
3860  [CD] solaris port: added SCSI functionality to solaris
3861       stubs.
3862
3863  [BA] smartd: attempt to address bug report about smartd
3864       hanging on USB devices when scanning:
3865       https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=107615
3866       Set a timeout of SCSITIMEOUT (nominally 7 seconds) before
3867       giving up.
3868
3869  [EM] smartd: DEVICESCAN will follow links in a devfs filesystem and
3870       make sure the end point is a disc.  Update documentation, added
3871       note about FreeBSD scanning
3872
3873  [BA] smartd: DEVICESCAN also looks for block devices in
3874       /dev.  Updated documentation.  Now scans for up to
3875       20 ATA devices /dev/hda-t rather than previous 12
3876       /dev/hda-l.
3877
3878  [EM] smartd: mirror the FreeBSD DEVICESCAN logic for Linux,
3879       so that smartd now scans only devices found in /dev/. Also,
3880       make utility memory functions take a line number and file so
3881       that we report errors with the correct location.
3882 
3883  [GG] add a note about Debian bug #208964 to WARNINGS.
3884
3885  [BA] smartctl: -T verypermissive option broken.  Use
3886       -T verpermissive until the next release, please.
3887
3888  [BA] Syntax mods so that code also compiles on Solaris using
3889       Sun Workshop compiler.  Need -xmemalign 1i -xCC flags
3890       for cc.
3891
3892smartmontools 5.21
3893
3894  [DK] Changed configure.in so -Wall is only included if gcc
3895       is used (this is a gcc specific flag) and -fsignedchar
3896       is not used at all (this is a gcc specific compiler
3897       flag).
3898
3899  [BA] Modifications so that code now compiles under solaris. Now
3900       all that's needed (:-) is to fill in os_solaris.[hc].  Added
3901       os_generic.[hc] as guide to future ports.  Fixed -D option
3902       of smartd (no file name).  Modified -h opt of smartd/smartctl
3903       to work properly with solaris getopt().
3904
3905  [EM] Update MAN pages with notes that 3ware drives are NOT supported
3906        under FreeBSD. Cleanup FreeBSD warning message handling.
3907
3908  [EM] FreeBSD only: Fix first user found bug....I guess I was making
3909       the wrong assumption on how to convert ATA devnames to
3910       channel/unit numbers.
3911 
3912  [EM] Allow for option --enable-sample to append '.sample' to installed
3913        smartd.conf and rc script files. Also, let rc script shell setting
3914        be determined by configure
3915
3916  [EM] Minor autoconf update to include -lcam for FreeBSD
3917
3918  [EM] Add conditional logic to allow FreeBSD to compile pre-ATAng.
3919        -- note, not tested
3920        Add some documentation to INSTALL for FreeBSD.
3921
3922  [EM] Implement SCSI CAM support for FreeBSD.  NOTE: I am not an expert
3923        in the use of CAM.  It seems to work for me, but I may be doing
3924        something horribly wrong, so please exercise caution.
3925
3926  [EM] Switch over to using 'atexit' rather than 'on_exit' routine. This also
3927        meant we needed to save the exit status elsewhere so our 'Goodbye'
3928        routine could examine it.
3929
3930  [EM] Move the DEVICESCAN code to os specific files. Also moved some of the
3931        smartd Memory functions to utility.c to make available to smartctl.
3932
3933  [EM] Code janitor work on os_freebsd.c.
3934
3935  [EM] Added os_freebsd.[hc] code.  Additional code janitor
3936       work.
3937
3938  [BA] Code janitor working, moving OS dependent code into
3939       os_linux.[hc].
3940
3941  [GG] conditionally compile os_{freebsd,linux}.o depending on
3942       host architecture
3943
3944  [PW] Print estimated completion time for tests
3945
3946  [BA] Added -F samsung2 flag to correct firmware byte swap.
3947       All samsung drives with *-23 firmware revision string.
3948
3949smartmontools 5.20
3950
3951  [GG] Fixed broken Makefile.am (zero length smartd.conf.5
3952       was being created), fix broken uninstall/distcheck targets
3953
3954  [FM] Improved Slackware init script added to /etc/smartd.initd
3955
3956smartmontools 5.19 [NOTE CHANGE OF RELEASE NUMBERING]
3957
3958  [BA] smartctl: added '-T verypermissive' option which is
3959       equivalent to giving '-T permissive' many times.
3960
3961  [BA] Try harder to identify from IDENTIFY DEVICE structure
3962       if SMART supported/enabled.  smartd now does a more
3963       thorough job of trying to assess this before sending
3964       a SMART status command to find out for sure.
3965
3966  [BA] smartctl: it's now possible to override the program's
3967       guess of the device type (ATA or SCSI) with -d option.
3968
3969  [BA] try hard to avoid sending IDENTIFY DEVICE to packet
3970       devices (CDROMS).  They can't do SMART, and this generates
3971       annoying syslog messages. At the same time, identify type
3972       of Packet device.
3973
3974  [BA] smartctl: Can now use permissive option more
3975       than once, to control how far to go before giving up.
3976
3977  [BA] smartd: if user asked to monitor either error or self-test
3978       logs (-l error or -l selftest) WITHOUT monitoring any of the
3979       Attribute values, code will SEGV.  For 5.1-18 and earlier,
3980       a good workaround is to enable Auto offline (-o on).
3981
3982  [BA] smartctl: If enable auto offline command given, update auto
3983       offline status before printing capabilities.
3984
3985  [GG] Make autotools build the default, remove autotools.diff
3986
3987  [GG] Add auto{conf,make} support, not enabled by default.
3988
3989  [BA] Eliminated #include <linux/hdreg.h> from code. This
3990       should simplify porting to solaris, FreeBSD, etc. The
3991       only linux-specific code is now isolated to three routines,
3992       one for SCSI, one for Escalade, one for ATA.
3993
3994smartmontools 5.1-18
3995
3996  [BA] smartd: fixed serious bug - Attributes not monitored unless
3997       user told smartd to ignore at least one of them!
3998
3999smartmontools 5.1-17
4000
4001  [BA] Default runlevels for smartd changed from 3 and 5 to
4002       2, 3, 4, and 5.
4003
4004  [BA] Removed as much dynamic memory allocation as possible from
4005       configuration file parsing. Reloading config file, even in
4006       presence of syntax errors etc. should not cause memory leaks.
4007
4008  [PW] It is no longer permissible for the integer part (if any) of
4009       arguments to --report and --device to be followed by non-digits.
4010       For example, the "foo" in --report=ioctl,2foo was previously
4011       ignored, but now causes an error.
4012
4013  [BA] smartd: added -q/--quit command line option to specify
4014       under what circumstances smartd should exit.  The old
4015       -c/--checkonce option is now obsoleted by this more
4016       general-purpose option.
4017
4018  [BA] smartd now responds to a HUP signal by re-reading its
4019       configuration file /etc/smartd.conf.  If there are
4020       errors in this file, then the configuration file is
4021       ignored and smartd continues to monitor the devices that
4022       it was monitoring prior to receiving the HUP signal.
4023
4024  [BA] Now correctly get SMART status from disks behind 3ware
4025       controllers, thanks to Adam Radford. Need 3w-xxxx driver
4026       version 1.02.00.037 or later. Previously the smartmontools
4027       SMART status always returned "OK" for 3ware controllers.
4028
4029  [BA] Additional work on dynamic memory allocation/deallocation.
4030       This should have no effect on smartctl, but clears that way
4031       for smartd to dynamically add and remove entries.  It should
4032       also now be easier to modify smartd to re-read its config
4033       file on HUP (which is easy) without leaking memory (which is
4034       harder). The philosophy is that memory for data structures in
4035       smartd is now allocated only on demand, the first time it
4036       is needed.
4037
4038  [BA] smartd: finished cleanup.  Now use create/rm functions for
4039       cfgentries and dynamic memory allocation almost everywhere.
4040       Philosophy: aggresively try and provoke SEGV to help find
4041       bad code.
4042
4043  [BA] Added SAMSUNG SV0412H to knowndrives table.
4044
4045  [BA] smartd: if DEVICESCAN used then knowndrives table might not set
4046       the -v attributes correctly -- may have been the same for all
4047       the drives.  Cleaned up some data structures and memory
4048       allocation to try and ensure segvs if such problems are
4049       introduced again.
4050
4051  [BA] Now allow -S on and -o on for the 3ware device type.  For these
4052       commands to be passed through, the stock 3ware 3w-xxxx driver
4053       must be patched (8 lines).  I'll post a patch on the smartmontools
4054       home page after it's been tested by a few other people and 3ware
4055       have had a chance to look it over.
4056
4057smartmontools-5.1-16
4058
4059  [BA] smartd - can now monitor ATA drives behind 3ware controllers.
4060
4061  [BA] smartd - changed some FATAL out of memory error messages from
4062       syslog level LOG_INFO to LOG_CRIT.
4063
4064  [BA] smartctl - added code to look at ATA drives behind 3ware RAID
4065       controllers using the 3w-xxxx driver.  Note that for technical
4066       reasons related to the 3w-xxxx driver, the "Enable Autosave",
4067       "Enable Automatic Offline" commands are not implemented.
4068       I will add this to smartd shortly.
4069
4070  [BA] smartd - modified sleep loop, so that smartd no longer comes
4071       on the run queue every second.  Instead, unless interrupted,
4072       it sleeps until the next polling time, when it wakes up. Now
4073       smartd also tries to wake up at exactly the right
4074       intervals (nominally 30 min) even if the user has been sending
4075       signals to it.
4076
4077  [GG] add Fujitsu MHN2300AT to vendoropts_9_seconds.
4078
4079  [EB] Fujitsu change in knowndrives ... match the whole MPD and
4080       MPE series for vendoropts_9_seconds.
4081
4082  [BA] smartd bug, might cause segv if a device can not be opened. Was
4083       due to missing comma in char* list.  Consequence is that email
4084       failure messages might have had the wrong Subject: heading for
4085       errorcount, FAILEDhealthcheck, FAILEDreadsmartdata, FAILEDreadsmarterrorlog,
4086       FAILEDreadsmartsefltestlog, FAILEDopendevice were all displaced by
4087       one.  And FAILEDopendevice might have caused a segv if -m was being
4088       used as a smartd Directive.
4089
4090smartmontools-5.1-15
4091
4092  [BA] Cleaned up smartmontools.spec so that upgrading, removing
4093       and other such operations correctly preserve running behavior
4094       and booting behavior of smartd.
4095
4096  [BA] Improved formatting of ATA Error Log printout, and added
4097       listing of names of commands that caused the error. Added
4098       obsolete ATA-4 SMART feature commands to table, along with
4099       obsolete SFF-8035i SMART feature command.
4100
4101  [PW] Added atacmdnames.[hc], which turn command register &
4102       feature register pairs into ATA command names.
4103
4104  [BA] Added conveyance self-test.  Some code added for selective
4105       self-tests, but #ifdefed out.
4106
4107  [BA] Modified smartd exit status and log levels.  If smartd is
4108       "cleanly" terminated, for example with SIGTERM, then its
4109       exit messages are now logged at LOG_INFO not LOG_CRIT
4110
4111  [BA] Added Attribute IDs  (Fujitsu) 0xCA - 0xCE.  This is decimal
4112       202-206. Added -v switches for interpretation of Attributes
4113       192, 198 and 201.
4114
4115  [BA] Made smartmontools work with any endian order machine for:
4116       - SMART selftest log
4117       - SMART ATA error log
4118       - SMART Attributes values
4119       - SMART Attributes thesholds
4120       - IDENTIFY DEVICE information
4121       - LOG DIRECTORY
4122       Smartmontools is now free of endian bias and works correctly
4123       on both little- and big-endian hardware.  This has been tested by
4124       three independent PPC users on a variety of ATA and SCSI hardware.
4125
4126  [DG] Check that certain SCSI command responses are well formed. If
4127       IEC mode page response is not well formed exit smartctl. This
4128       is to protect aacraid. smartd should ignore a aacraid device.
4129
4130smartmontools-5.1-14
4131
4132  [BA] smartctl: added column to -A output to show if Attributes are
4133       updated only during off-line testing or also during normal
4134       operation.
4135
4136smartmontools-5.1-13
4137
4138  [BA] smartd: attempt to enable/disable automatic offline testing even
4139       if the disk appears not to support it.  Now the same logic
4140       as smartctl.
4141
4142  [BA] Added definition of Attribute 201, soft read error rate.
4143
4144  [BA] Added IBM/Hitachi IC35L120AVV207-1 (GXP-180) and corresponding
4145       8MB Cache GXP-120 to drive database.
4146
4147  [BA] smartd: if DEVICESCAN Directive used in smartd.conf, and
4148       -I, -R or -r Directives used in conjunction with this, got
4149       segv errors.  Fixed by correcting memory allocation calls.
4150
4151  [BA] smartd: enable automatic offline testing was broken due
4152       to cut-and-paste error that disabled it instead of
4153       enabling it.  Thanks to Maciej W. Rozycki for pointing
4154       out the problem and solution.
4155
4156  [BA] Fixed "spelling" of some Attribute names to replace spaces
4157       in names by underscores. (Fixed field width easier for awk
4158       style parsing.)
4159
4160  [BA,GF] Added mods submitted by [GF] to support Attribute 193 being
4161       load/unload cycles. Add -v 193,loadunload option, useful for
4162       Hitachi drive DK23EA-30, and add this drive to knowndrive.c
4163       Add meaning of attribute 250 : Read error retry rate
4164
4165smartmontools-5.1-12
4166
4167  [BA] Added another entry for Samsung drives to knowndrive table.
4168
4169  [DG] Refine SCSI log sense command to do a double fetch in most cases
4170       (but not for the TapeAlert log page). Fix TapeAlert and Self Test
4171       log page response truncation.
4172
4173  [PW] Added 'removable' argument to -d Directive for smartd.  This indicates
4174       that smartd should continue (rather than exit) if the device does not
4175       appear to be present.
4176
4177  [BA] Modified smartmontools.spec [Man pages location] and
4178       smartd.initd [Extra space kills chkconfig!] for Redhat 6.x
4179       compatibility (thanks to Gerald Schnabel).
4180
4181smartmontools-5.1-11
4182
4183  [EB] Add another Fujitsu disk to knowndrives.c
4184
4185  [GG] match for scsi/ and ide/ in case of devfs to exclude false postives
4186
4187  [BA] If SCSI device listed in /etc/smartd.conf fails to open or do
4188       SMART stuff correctly, or not enough space
4189       to list all SCSI devices, fail with error unless
4190       -DSCSIDEVELOPMENT set during compile-time.
4191
4192  [BA] Added automatic recognition of /dev/i* (example: /dev/ide/...)
4193       as an ATA device.
4194
4195  [DG] Add "Device type: [disk | tape | medium changer | ...] line to
4196       smartctl -i output for SCSI devices.
4197
4198  [PW] Fixed bug in smartd where test email would be sent regularly (for
4199       example, daily if the user had specified -M daily) instead of just
4200       once on startup.
4201
4202  [KM] More TapeAlert work. Added translations for media changer
4203       alerts. TapeAlert support reported according to the log page
4204       presence. ModeSense not attempted for non-ready tapes (all
4205       drives do not support this after all). Get peripheral type from
4206       Inquiry even if drive info is not printed. Add QUIETON()
4207       QUIETOFF() to TapeAlert log check.
4208
4209  [BA] Stupid bug in atacmds.c minor_str[] affected ataVersionInfo().
4210       Two missing commas meant that minor_str[] had two few elements,
4211       leading to output like this:
4212       Device Model:     Maxtor 6Y120L0
4213       Serial Number:    Y40BF74E
4214       Firmware Version: YAR41VW0
4215       Device is:        Not in smartctl database [for details use: -P showall]
4216       ATA Version is:   7
4217       ATA Standard is:  9,minutes
4218                         ^^^^^^^^^
4219       Missing commas inserted.
4220
4221  [BA] Fixed smartd bug.  On device registration, if ATA device did
4222       not support SMART error or self-test logs but user had asked to
4223       monitor them, an attempt would be made to read them anyway,
4224       possibly generating "Drive Seek" errors.  We now check that
4225       the self-test and error logs are supported before trying to
4226       access them the first time.
4227
4228  [GG/BA] Fixed bug where if SMART ATA error log not supported,
4229       command was tried anyway. Changed some error printing to use
4230       print handlers.
4231
4232  [GG] Makefile modifications to ease packaging
4233
4234  [DG] Did work for TapeAlerts (SCSI). Now can detect /dev/nst0 as a
4235       SCSI device. Also open SCSI devices O_NONBLOCK so they don't
4236       hang on open awaiting media. The ATA side should worry about
4237       this also: during a DEVICESCAN a cd/dvd device without media
4238       will hang. Added some TapeAlert code suggested by Kai Makisara.
4239
4240smartmontools-5.1-10
4241
4242  [PW] Extended the -F option/Directive to potentially fix other firmware
4243       bugs in addition to the Samsung byte-order bug.  Long option name is
4244       now --firmwarebug and the option/Directive accepts an argument
4245       indicating the type of firmware bug to fix.
4246
4247  [BA] Fixed a bug that prevented the enable automatic off-line
4248       test feature from enabling.  It also prevented the enable Attribute
4249       autosave from working.  See CVS entry for additional details.
4250
4251  [PW] Modified the -r/--report option (smartctl and smartd) to allow the
4252       user to specify the debug level as a positive integer.
4253
4254  [BA] Added --log directory option to smartctl.  If the disk
4255       supports the general-purpose logging feature set (ATA-6/7)
4256       then this option enables the Log Directory to be printed.
4257       This Log Directory shows which device logs are available, and
4258       their lengths in sectors.
4259
4260  [PW] Added -P/--presets option to smartctl and -P Directive to smartd.
4261
4262  [GG] Introduce different exit codes indicating the type of problem
4263       encountered for smartd.
4264
4265  [DG] Add non-medium error count to '-l error' and extended self test
4266       duration to '-l selftest'. Get scsi IEs and temperature changes
4267       working in smartd. Step over various scsi disk problems rather
4268       than abort smartd startup.
4269
4270  [DG] Support -l error for SCSI disks (and tapes). Output error counter
4271       log pages.
4272
4273  [BA] Added -F/--fixbyteorder option to smartctl.  This allows us to read
4274       SMART data from some disks that have byte-reversed two- and four-
4275       byte quantities in their SMART data structures.
4276
4277  [BA] Fixed serious bug: the -v options in smartd.conf were all put
4278       together and used together, not drive-by-drive.
4279
4280  [PW] Added knowndrives.h and knowndrives.c.  The knowndrives array
4281       supersedes the drivewarnings array.
4282
4283  [GG] add {-p,--pidfile} option to smartd to write a PID file on
4284       startup. Update the manpage accordingly.
4285
4286  [DG] Fix scsi smartd problem detecting SMART support. More cleaning
4287       and fix (and rename) scsiTestUnitReady(). More scsi renaming.
4288
4289  [BA] Fixed smartd so that if a disk that is explictily listed is not
4290       found, then smartd will exit with nonzero status BEFORE forking.
4291       If a disk can't be registered, this will also be detected before
4292       forking, so that init scripts can react correctly.
4293
4294  [BA] Replaced all linux-specific ioctl() calls in atacmds.c with
4295       a generic handler smartcommandhandler().  Now the only routine
4296       that needs to be implemented for a given OS is os_specific_handler().
4297       Also implemented the --report ataioctl. This provides
4298       two levels of reporting.  Using the option once gives a summary
4299       report of device IOCTL transactions.  Using the option twice give
4300       additional info (a printout of ALL device raw 512 byte SMART
4301       data structures).  This is useful for debugging.
4302
4303  [DG] more scsi cleanup. Output scsi device serial number (VPD page
4304       0x80) if available as part of '-i'. Implement '-t offline' as
4305       default self test (only self test older disks support).
4306
4307  [BA] Changed crit to info in loglevel of smartd complaint to syslog
4308       if DEVICESCAN enabled and device not found.
4309
4310  [BA] Added -v 194,10xCelsius option/Directive. Raw Attribute number
4311       194 is ten times the disk temperature in Celsius.
4312
4313  [DG] scsicmds.[hc] + scsiprint.c: clean up indentation, remove tabs.
4314       Introduce new intermediate interface based on "struct scsi_cmnd_io"
4315       to isolate SCSI generic commands + responses from Linux details;
4316       should help port to FreeBSD of SCSI part of smartmontools.
4317       Make SCSI command builders more parametric.
4318
4319smartmontools-5.1-9
4320 
4321  [BA] smartctl: if HDIO_DRIVE_TASK ioctl() is not implemented (no
4322       kernel support, then try to assess drive health by examining
4323       Attribute values/thresholds directly.
4324
4325  [BA] smartd/smartctl: added -v 200,writeerrorcount option/Directive
4326       for Fujitsu disks.
4327
4328  [BA] smartd: Now send email if any of the SMART commands fails,
4329       or if open()ing the device fails.  This is often noted
4330       as a common disk failure mode.
4331
4332  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Added -v N,raw8 -v N,raw16 and -v N,raw48
4333       Directives/Options for printing Raw Attributes in different
4334       Formats.
4335
4336  [BA] smartd: Added -r ID and -R ID for reporting/tracking Raw
4337       values of Attributes.
4338
4339  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Changed printing of spin-up-time attribute
4340       raw value to reflect current/average as per IBM standard.
4341
4342  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Added -v 9,seconds option for disks which
4343       use Attribute 9 for power-on lifetime in seconds.
4344
4345  [BA] smartctl: Added a warning message so that users of some IBM
4346       disks are warned to update their firmware.  Note: we may want
4347       to add a command-line flag to disable the warning messages.
4348       I have done this in a general way, using regexp, so that we
4349       can add warnings about any type of disk that we wish...

4352
4353  [BA] smartd: Created a subdirectory examplescripts/ of source
4354       directory that contains executable scripts for the -M exec PATH
4355       Directive of smartd.
4356
4357smartmontools-5.1-5
4358
4359  [BA] smartd: DEVICESCAN in /etc/smartd.conf
4360       can now be followed by all the same Directives as a regular
4361       device name like /dev/hda takes.  This allows one to use
4362       (for example):
4363       DEVICESCAN -m root@example.com
4364       in the /etc/smartd.conf file.
4365
4366  [BA] smartd: Added -c (--checkonce) command-line option. This checks
4367       all devices once, then exits.  The exit status can be
4368       used to learn if devices were detected, and if smartd is
4369       functioning correctly. This is primarily for Distribution
4370       scripters.
4371
4372  [BA] smartd: Implemented -M exec Directive for
4373       smartd.conf.  This makes it possible to run an
4374       arbitrary script or mailing program with the
4375       -m option.
4376
4377  [PW] smartd: Modified -M Directive so that it can be given
4378       multiple times.  Added -M exec Directive.

4381
4382  [BA] Fixed bug in smartctl pointed out by Pierre Gentile.
4383       -d scsi didn't work because tryata and tryscsi were
4384       reversed -- now works on /devfs SCSI devices.
4385
4386  [BA] Fixed bug in smartctl pointed out by Gregory Goddard
4387       <ggoddard@ufl.edu>.  Manual says that bit 6 of return
4388       value turned on if errors found in smart error log.  But
4389       this wasn't implemented.
4390
4391smartmontools-5.1-3
4392
4393  [BA] Modified printing format for 9,minutes to read
4394       Xh+Ym not X h + Y m, so that fields are fixed width.
4395
4396  [BA] Added Attribute 240 "head flying hours"
4397
4398smartmontools-5.1.1
4399
4400  [BA] As requested, local time/date now printed by smartctl -i
4401
4402  [PW] Added "help" argument to -v for smartctl
4403
4404  [PW] Added -D, --showdirectives option to smartd
4405
4406  [DG] add '-l selftest' capability for SCSI devices (update smartctl.8)
4407
4408  [BA] smartd,smartctl: added additional Attribute modification option
4409       -v 220,temp and -v 9,temp.

4418
4419  [BA/DG] Fixed uncommented comment in smartd.conf
4420
4421  [DG] Correct 'Recommended start stop count' for SCSI devices
4422
4423  [PW] Replaced smartd.conf directive -C with smartd option -i
4424
4425  [PW] Changed options for smartctl -- see man page.
4426
4427  [BA] Use strerror() to generate system call error messages.
4428
4429  [BA] smartd: fflush() all open streams before fork().
4430
4431  [BA] smartctl, smartd simplified internal handling of checksums
4432  for simpler porting and less code.
4433
4434smartmontools-5.0.49
4435
4436  [PW] smartd --debugmode changed to --debug
4437
4438  [BA] smartd/smartctl added attribute 230 Head Amplitude from
4439  IBM DPTA-353750.
4440
4441  [PW] Added list of proposed new options for smartctl to README.
4442
4443  [PW] smartd: ParseOpts() now uses getopt_long() if HAVE_GETOPT_LONG is
4444  defined and uses getopt() otherwise.  This is controlled by CPPFLAGS in
4445  the Makefile.
4446
4447  [BA] smartd: Fixed a couple of error messages done with perror()
4448  to redirect them as needed.
4449
4450smartmontools-5.0.48
4451
4452  [BA] smartctl: The -O option to enable an Immediate off-line test
4453  did not print out the correct time that the test would take to
4454  complete.  This is because the test timer is volatile and not
4455  fixed.  This has been fixed, and the smartctl.8 man page has been
4456  updated to explain how to track the Immediate offline test as it
4457  progresses, and to further emphasize the differences between the
4458  off-line immediate test and the self-tests.
4459
4460  [BA] smartd/smartctl: Added new attribute (200) Multi_Zone_Error_Rate
4461
4462  [BA] smartctl: modified so that arguments could have either a single -
4463  as in -ea or multiple ones as in -e -a.  Improved warning message for
4464  device not opened, and fixed error in redirection of error output of
4465  HD identity command.
4466
4467  [PW] smartd: added support for long options.  All short options are still
4468  supported; see manpage for available long options.
4469
4470  [BA] smartctl.  When raw Attribute value was 2^31 or larger, did
4471  not print correctly.
4472
4473smartmontools-5.0.46
4474
4475  [BA] smartd: added smartd.conf Directives -T and -s.  The -T Directive
4476  enables/disables Automatic Offline Testing.  The -s Directive
4477  enables/disables Attribute Autosave. Documentation and
4478  example configuration file updated to agree.
4479
4480  [BA] smartd: user can make smartd check the disks at any time
4481  (ie, interrupt sleep) by sending signal SIGUSR1 to smartd.  This
4482  can be done for example with:
4483  kill -USR1 <pid>
4484  where <pid> is the process ID number of smartd.
4485
4486  [EB] scsi: don't trust the data we receive from the drive too
4487  much. It very well might have errors (like zero response length).
4488  Seen on Megaraid logical drive, and verified in the driver source.
4489
4490  [BA] smartd: added Directive -m for sending test email and
4491  for modifying email reminder behavior.  Updated manual, and sample
4492  configuration file to illustrate & explain this.
4493
4494  [BA] smartd: increased size of a continued smartd.conf line to
4495  1023 characters.
4496
4497  [BA] Simplified Directive parsers and improved warning/error
4498  messages.
4499
4500smartmontools-5.0.45
4501
4502  [EB] Fixed bug in smartd where testunitready logic inverted
4503  prevented functioning on scsi devices.
4504  The bug in question only affects smartd users with scsi devices.
4505  To see if your version of smartd has the testunitready() bug, do
4506     smartd -V
4507  If the version of the module smartd.c in a line like:
4508     Module: smartd.c      revision: 1.66   date: 2002/11/17
4509  has a revision greater than or equal to 1.30, and less than or equal to
4510  1.64, then your version of the code has this problem.
4511  This problem affected releases starting with RELEASE_5_0_16 up to and
4512  including RELEASE_5_0_43.
4513
4514  [BA] Added testunitnotready to smartctl for symmetry with smartd.
4515
4516  [SB] added Czech descriptions to .spec file
4517  [SB]  corrected comment in smartd.conf example
4518
4519  [BA] Changed way that entries in the ATA error log are printed,
4520  to make it clearer which is the most recent error and
4521  which is the oldest one.
4522
4523  NOTE: All changes made prior to this point were done by Bruce Allen
4524  [BA] although several of them had been suggested by earlier postings
4525  by Stanislav Brabec [SB].
4526
4527smartmontools-5.0.43
4528
4529  Changed Temperature_Centigrade to Temperature_Celsius.
4530  The term "Centigrade" ceased to exist in 1948.  (c.f
4531  http://www.bartleby.com/64/C004/016.html).
4532
4533smartmontools-5.0.42
4534
4535  Modified SCSI device check to also send warning emails if
4536  requested in directives file.
4537
4538  Added a new smartd configuration file Directive: -M ADDRESS.
4539  This sends a single warning email to ADDRESS for failures or
4540  errors detected with the -c, -L, -l, or -f Directives.
4541
4542smartmontools-5.0.38
4543
4544  Modified perror() statements in atacmds.c so that printout for SMART
4545  commands errors is properly suppressed or queued depending upon users
4546  choices for error reporting modes.
4547
4548  Added Italian descriptions to smartmontools.spec file.
4549
4550  Started impementing send-mail-on-error for smartd; not yet enabled.
4551
4552  Added -P (Permissive) Directive to smartd.conf file to allow SMART
4553  monitoring of pre-ATA-3 Rev 4 disks that have SMART but do not have
4554  a SMART capability bit.
4555 
4556  Removed charset encodings from smartmontools.spec file for non-English
4557  fields.
4558
4559smartmontools-5.0.32
4560
4561  Added manual page smartd.conf.5 for configuration file.
4562
4563  smartctl: Missing ANSI prototype in failuretest(); fixed.
4564
4565  smartctl: Checksum warnings now printed on stdout, or are silent,
4566  depending upon -q and -Q settings.
4567
4568smartmontools-5.0.31
4569
4570  Changed Makefile so that the -V option does not reflect file state
4571  before commit!
4572
4573  smartctl: added new options -W, -U, and -P to control if and how the
4574  smartctl exits if an error is detected in either a SMART data
4575  structure checksum, or a SMART command returns an error.
4576
4577  modified manual page to break options into slightly more logical
4578  categories.
4579
4580  reformatted 'usage' message order to agree with man page ordering
4581
4582  modified .spec file so that locale information now contains
4583  character set definition.   Changed pt_BR to pt since we do not use any
4584  aspect other than language.  See man setlocale.
4585
4586smartmontools-5.0.30
4587  smartctl: added new options -n and -N to force device to be ATA or SCSI
4588  smartctl: no longer dies silently if device path does not start/dev/X
4589  smartctl: now handles arbitrary device paths
4590
4591smartmontools-5.0.29
4592  Modified .spec file and Makefile to make them more compliant with
4593  the "right" way of doing things.
4594
4595smartmontools-5.0.26
4596  Fixed typesetting error in man page smartd.8
4597
4598  Removed redundant variable (harmless) from smartd.c
4599
4600smartmontools-5.0.25
4601
4602  Added a new directive for the configuration file.  If the word
4603  DEVICESCAN appears before any non-commented material in the
4604  configuration file, then the confi file will be ignored and the
4605  devices wil be scanned.
4606
4607smartmontools-5.0.24
4608
4609    Note: it has now been confirmed that the code modifications between
4610    5.0.23 and 5.0.24 have eliminated the GCC 3.2 problems.  Note that
4611    there is a GCC bug howerver, see #8404 at
4612    http://gcc.gnu.org/cgi-bin/gnatsweb.pl?database=gcc&cmd=query
4613    http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8404
4614
4615      Added new Directive for Configuration file:
4616      -C <N> This sets the time in between disk checks to be <N>
4617      seconds apart.  Note that  although  you  can  give
4618       this Directive multiple times on different lines of
4619       the configuration file, only the final  value  that
4620       is  given  has  an  effect,  and applies to all the
4621       disks.  The default value of <N> is 1800  sec,  and
4622       the minimum allowed value is ten seconds.
4623
4624    Problem wasn't the print format. F.L.W. Meunier <0@pervalidus.net>
4625    sent me a gcc 3.2 build and I ran it under a debugger.  The
4626    problem seems to be with passing the very large (2x512+4) byte
4627    data structures as arguments.  I never liked this anyway; it was
4628    inherited from smartsuite.  So I've changed all the heavyweight
4629    functions (ATA ones, anyone) to just passing pointers, not hideous
4630    kB size structures on the stack.  Hopefully this will now build OK
4631    under gcc 3.2 with any sensible compilation options.
4632
4633smartmontools-5.0.23
4634
4635    Because of reported problems with GCC 3.2 compile, I have gone
4636    thorough the code and explicitly changed all print format
4637    parameters to correspond EXACTLY to int unless they have to be
4638    promoted to long longs.  To quote from the glibc bible: [From
4639    GLIBC Manual: Since the prototype doesn't specify types for
4640    optional arguments, in a call to a variadic function the default
4641    argument promotions are performed on the optional argument
4642    values. This means the objects of type char or short int (whether
4643    signed or not) are promoted to either int or unsigned int, as
4644    appropriate.]
4645
4646smartmontools-5.0.22
4647
4648    smartd, smartctl now warn if they find an attribute whose ID
4649    number does not match between Data and Threshold structures.
4650
4651    Fixed nasty bug which led to wrong number of arguments for a
4652    varargs statement, with attendent stack corruption.  Sheesh!
4653    Have added script to CVS attic to help find such nasties in the
4654    future.
4655
4656smartmontools-5.0.21
4657
4658    Eliminated some global variables out of header files and other
4659    minor cleanup of smartd.
4660
4661smartmontools-5.0.20
4662
4663    Did some revision of the man page for smartd and made the usage
4664    messages for Directives 100% consistent.
4665
4666smartmontools-5.0-19
4667
4668    smartd: prints warning message when it gets SIGHUP, saying that it
4669    is NOT re-reading the config file.
4670
4671    smartctl: updated man page to say self-test commands -O,x,X,s,S,A
4672    appear to be supported in the code.  [I can't test these,  can anyone
4673    report?]
4674
4675smartmontools-5.0-18
4676
4677    smartctl: smartctl would previously print the LBA of a self-test
4678    if it completed, and the LBA was not 0 or 0xff...f However
4679    according to the specs this is not correct.  According to the
4680    specs, if the self-test completed without error then LBA is
4681    undefined.  This version fixes that.  LBA value only printed if
4682    self-test encountered an error.
4683
4684smartmontools-5.0-17
4685
4686    smartd has changed significantly. This is the first CVS checkin of
4687    code that extends the options available for smartd.  The following
4688    options can be placed into the /etc/smartd.conf file, and control the
4689    behavior of smartd.
4690    Configuration file Directives (following device name):
4691    -A     Device is an ATA device
4692    -S     Device is a SCSI device
4693    -c     Monitor SMART Health Status
4694    -l     Monitor SMART Error Log for changes
4695    -L     Monitor SMART Self-Test Log for new errors
4696    -f     Monitor for failure of any 'Usage' Attributes
4697    -p     Report changes in 'Prefailure' Attributes
4698    -u     Report changes in 'Usage' Attributes
4699    -t     Equivalent to -p and -u Directives
4700    -a     Equivalent to -c -l -L -f -t Directives
4701    -i ID  Ignore Attribute ID for -f Directive
4702    -I ID  Ignore Attribute ID for -p, -u or -t Directive
4703    #      Comment: text after a hash sign is ignored
4704    \      Line continuation character
4705
4706    cleaned up functions used for printing CVS IDs.  Now use string
4707    library, as it should be.
4708
4709    modified length of device name string in smartd internal structure
4710    to accomodate max length device name strings
4711
4712    removed un-implemented (-e = Email notification) option from
4713    command line arg list.  We'll put it back on when implemeneted.
4714
4715    smartd now logs serious (fatal) conditions in its operation at
4716    loglevel LOG_CRIT rather than LOG_INFO before exiting with error.
4717
4718    smartd used to open a file descriptor for each SMART enabled
4719    device, and then keep it open the entire time smartd was running.
4720    This meant that some commands, like IOREADBLKPART did not work,
4721    since the fd to the device was open.  smartd now opens the device
4722    when it needs to read values, then closes it.  Also, if one time
4723    around it can't open the device, it simply prints a warning
4724    message but does not give up.  Have eliminated the .fd field from
4725    data structures -- no longer gets used.
4726
4727    smartd now opens SCSI devices as well using O_RDONLY rather than
4728    O_RDWR.  If someone can no longer monitor a SCSI device that used
4729    to be readable, this may well be the reason why.
4730
4731    smartd never checked if the number of ata or scsi devices detected
4732    was greater than the max number it could monitor.  Now it does.
4733
4734smartmontools-5.0-16
4735
4736    smartd on startup now looks in the configuration file /etc/smartd.conf for
4737    a list of devices which to include in its monitoring list.  See man page
4738    (man smartd) for syntax.
4739
4740    smartd: close file descriptors of SCSI device if not SMART capable
4741    Closes ALL file descriptors after forking to daemon.
4742
4743    added new temperature attribute (231, temperature)
4744
4745    smartd: now open ATA disks using O_RDONLY
4746
4747smartmontools-5.0-11
4748
4749    smartd now prints the name of a failed or changed attribute
4750    into logfile, not just ID number
4751
4752    Changed name of -p (print version) option to -V
4753
4754    Minor change in philosophy: if a SMART command fails or the device
4755    appears incapable of a SMART command that the user has asked for,
4756    complain by printing an error message, but go ahead and try
4757    anyway.  Since unimplemented SMART commands should just return an
4758    error but not cause disk problems, this should't cause any
4759    difficulty.
4760
4761    Added two new flags: q and Q.  q is quiet mode - only print: For
4762    the -l option, errors recorded in the SMART error log; For the -L
4763    option, errors recorded in the device self-test log; For the -c
4764    SMART "disk failing" status or device attributes (pre-failure or
4765    usage) which failed either now or in the past; For the -v option
4766    device attributes (pre-failure or usage) which failed either now
4767    or in the past.  Q is Very Quiet mode: Print no ouput.  The only
4768    way to learn about what was found is to use the exit status of
4769    smartctl.
4770
4771    smartctl now returns sensible values (bitmask).  See smartctl.h
4772    for the values, and the man page for documentation.
4773
4774    The SMART status check now uses the correct ATA call.  If failure
4775    is detected we search through attributes to list the failed ones.
4776    If the SMART status check shows GOOD, we then look to see if their
4777    are any usage attributes or prefail attributes have failed at any
4778    time.  If so we print them.
4779
4780    Modified function that prints vendor attributes to say if the
4781    attribute has currently failed or has ever failed.
4782
4783    -p option now prints out license info and CVS strings for all
4784    modules in the code, nicely formatted.
4785
4786    Previous versions of this code (and Smartsuite) only generate
4787    SMART failure errors if the value of an attribute is below the
4788    threshold and the prefailure bit is set.  However the ATA Spec
4789    (ATA4 <=Rev 4) says that it is a SMART failure if the value of an
4790    attribute is LESS THAN OR EQUAL to the threshold and the
4791    prefailure bit is set.  This is now fixed in both smartctl and
4792    smartd.  Note that this is a troubled subject -- the original
4793    SFF 8035i specification defining SMART was inconsistent about
4794    this.  One section says that Attribute==Threshold is pass,
4795    and another section says it is fail.  However the ATA specs are
4796    consistent and say Attribute==Threshold is a fail.
4797
4798    smartd did not print the correct value of any failing SMART attribute.  It
4799    printed the index in the attribute table, not the attribute
4800    ID. This is fixed.
4801
4802    when starting self-tests in captive mode ioctl returns EIO because
4803    the drive has been busied out.  Detect this and don't return an eror
4804    in this case.  Check this this is correct (or how to fix it?)
4805 
4806    fixed possible error in how to determine ATA standard support
4807    for devices with no ATA minor revision number.
4808
4809    device opened only in read-only not read-write mode.  Don't need R/W
4810    access to get smart data. Check this with Andre.
4811
4812    smartctl now handles all possible choices of "multiple options"
4813    gracefully.  It goes through the following phases of operation,
4814    in order: INFORMATION, ENABLE/DISABLE, DISPLAY DATA, RUN/ABORT TESTS.
4815    Documentation has bee updated to explain the different phases of
4816    operation.  Control flow through ataPrintMain()
4817    simplified.

4819    If reading device identity information fails, try seeing if the info
4820    can be accessed using a "DEVICE PACKET" command.  This way we can
4821    at least get device info.
4822
4823    Modified Makefile to automatically tag CVS archive on issuance of
4824    a release
4825
4826    Modified drive detection so minor device ID code showing ATA-3 rev
4827    0 (no SMART) is known to not be SMART capable.
4828
4829    Now verify the checksum of the device ID data structure, and of the
4830    attributes threshold structure.  Before neither of these
4831    structures had their checksums verified.
4832
4833    New behavior vis-a-vis checksums.  If they are wrong, we log
4834    warning messages to stdout, stderr, and syslog, but carry on
4835    anyway.  All functions now call a checksumwarning routine if the
4836    checksum doesn't vanish as it should.
4837
4838    Changed Read Hard Disk Identity function to get fresh info from
4839    the disk on each call rather than to use the values that were read
4840    upon boot-up into the BIOS.  This is the biggest change in this
4841    release.  The ioctl(device, HDIO_GET_IDENTITY, buf ) call should
4842    be avoided in such code.  Note that if people get garbled strings
4843    for the model, serial no and firmware versions of their drives,
4844    then blame goes here (the BIOS does the byte swapping for you,
4845    apparently!)
4846   
4847    Function ataSmartSupport now looks at correct bits in drive
4848    identity structure to verify first that these bits are valid,
4849    before using them.
4850   
4851    Function ataIsSmartEnabled() written which uses the Drive ID state
4852    information to tell if SMART is enabled or not.  We'll carry this
4853    along for the moment without using it.
4854
4855    Function ataDoesSmartWork() guaranteed to work if the device
4856    supports SMART.
4857
4858    Replace some numbers by #define MACROS
4859
4860    Wrote Function TestTime to return test time associated with each
4861    different type of test.
4862
4863    Thinking of the future, have added a new function called
4864    ataSmartStatus2().  Eventually when I understand how to use the
4865    TASKFILE API and am sure that this works correctly, it will
4866    replace ataSmartStatus().  This queries the drive directly to
4867    see if the SMART status is OK, rather than comparing thresholds to
4868    attribute values ourselves. But I need to get some drives that fail
4869    their SMART status to check it.

4872smartmontools-5.0-10
4873    Removed extraneous space before printing in some error messages
4874    Fixed additional typos in documentation
4875    Fixed some character buffers that were too short for their contents.
4876
4877smartmontools-5.0-9
4878
4879    Put project home path into all source files near the top
4880    Corrected typos in the documentation
4881    Modified Makefile so that Mandrake Cooker won't increment version number
4882    (unless they happen to be working on my machine, which I doubt!)
4883
4884smartmontools-5.0-8:
4885
4886    For IBM disks whose raw temp data includes three temps. print all
4887    three
4888
4889    print timestamps for error log to msec precision
4890
4891    added -m option for Hitachi disks that store power on life in
4892    minutes
4893
4894    added -L option for printing self-test error logs
4895
4896    in -l option, now print power on lifetime, so that one can see
4897    when the error took place
4898
4899    updated SMART structure definitions to ATA-5 spec
4900
4901    added -p option
4902
4903    added -f and -F options to enable/disable autosave threshold
4904    parameters
4905
4906    changed argv parsing to use getops -- elminate buffer overflow
4907    vulnerability
4908
4909    expanded and corrected documentation
4910
4911    fixed problem with smartd.  It did not actually call
4912    ataSmartEnable()!  Since the argument was left out, the test
4913    always suceeded because it evaluated to a pointer to the function.
4914
4915    smartd: closed open file descriptors if device does not support
4916    smart. Note: this still needs to be fixed for SCSI devices
