You can only configure this on the command line of smartd. Do
and then see the
-i N, --interval=N option
command line argument to smartd.
The reason that this is not in smartd.conf is that it is the same for all
You may want to add this into the startup script
by changing the line that reads
to read, for example:
daemon smartd -i 60
to get checks once per minute.
