Smartmontools work on different operating systems. Due to OS-specific issues and also depending on the different state of smartmontools development on the platforms, device support ist not the same for all OS platforms.
Documentation On Device Support
- USB devices and smartmontools - To access SMART functionality, smartmontools must be able to send ATA commands directly to the disk.
- NAS devices and smartmontools - Smartmontools can work also on Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices, if the appropiate functions are available there, e.g. on Dlink DNS-323 with fonz firmware
