I've just installed smartd and configured smartd.conf as reported below:
/dev/hda -H -o on -f -l error -l selftest -m email@example.com -t \
-R 1 -R 3 -R 5 -R 7 -R 11 -R 13 -M daily
executing the command smartctl -c /dev/hda I get this message:
Off-line data collection status: (0x02) Offline data collection activity
completed without error.
Self-test execution status: ( 16) The self-test routine was aborted by
Total time to complete off-line

Error logging capability: (0x01) Error logging supported.
Short self-test routine

Extended self-test routine

I run the self test manually and next I abort it, but seems no more tests have been executed by smartd.....because the message reported just a few rows above...is this right?
My questions are:
1. how can I check out what smartd is doing (because no message is written in /var/log messages every 30 minutes - this is the default run-time right?)
2. is the configuration directives right as I wrote it in smartd.conf?
Thank you :o)
P.s. this is just the 1st time I run smartmontools....
