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.

Features

  • 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

User Reviews

  • good

  • Great set of tools for monitoring HDD and SMART data etc. For poster TheFlipSide, yes there are a couple of good GUI tools that layer over and drive the lower level command set. For windows, I use this very good one: hddguardian so search for that on the CODEPLEX (I cannot put a URL in the review).

  • Great, with one exception! smartd (on linux server/as daemon on linux) will send warning mail of current pending sector/offline uncorrectable each time the server boots (or smartd is started) therefore, a server which boots each day will "spam" the inbox of the admin with these mails. If only it could write the last state/mail sent in a dir (like /var/lib or something), that would be great.

  • Have been using smartctl for ages and included it into ever-fresh ALT Linux Rescue of course -- the project is just great!

  • must have tool, someone know a webui who can manage smartmontool ?
