smartmontools contains utility programs (smartctl, smartd) to control/monitor storage systems using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology System (S.M.A.R.T.) built into most modern ATA and SCSI disks. It is derived from smartsuite.
- Schedule S.M.A.R.T. testing of your drive on a regular base with smartd
- smartd prints log messages and triggers alert mails when a failure of your drive is predictable
