Is there a nagios plug-in available where i can monitor S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) HDD parameters????
Through the S.M.A.R.T. system, hard disk drives incorporate a suite of advanced diagnostics that monitor the internal operations of a drive and provide an early warning for many types of potential problems. When a potential problem is detected, the drive can be repaired or replaced before any data are lost.
The S.M.A.R.T. system consists of software that resides both on the disk drive and on the host computer. The software on the disk drive monitors the internal performance of the motors, media, heads, and electronics of the drive. The host software (Active SMART) determines the overall reliability of the drive by analyzing the drive's internal performance parameters and comparing them to predetermined threshold limits.
