I finally got smartd working and the puppet-smartd module works now too. I realized how useful devicescan is.

How often are you guys having short or long tests occur?

Currently my smartd.conf looks like this:

DEVICESCAN -S on -o on -a -I 194 -s (S/../.././02|L/../../6/03)

Do I need additional options to cause it to dump errors it finds to syslog? or does devicescan do that automatically? All these disks are behind a megaraid controller, will the query work properly through devicescan?
