smartmontools still refers to hda

Linux migrated away from direct IDE support with hda device names
several years ago. Why does 'hda' still appear on the help and man
pages?

Please update.

PCIe SSD support

Hi Sir/Madam, 

I am currently working on solid state drives and plannng to use smartmontools for my work. 

Want to confirm that smartmontools support SAS SSDs and PCIe SSDs and can give SMART details about them. 

Also would like to capture details about garbage collection and wear levelling. 

Please share your inputs. 

Looking forward for your response.

Regards
Ravish Sharma

email verification in Trac should now work again

Hi all,

in the last weeks we had some issues with 
email verification for new users in our Trac.
This should be fixed now.

Support for Intel RS25AB080

Is there anyone in the list with the technical skill to modify the tools to support the Intel RS25AB080 RAID
controller? We have several Linux servers with SSD RAID arrays, but the tools cannot see or query the
individual drives, so there is no way to monitor drive health. Our older Dell H700 controllers worked
fine.

Question about License scope for smartmontool

Hi Sir,
   We're trying to use smartmontool SDK into our project and want to know if we can distribute your software? or Do you have any License agreement for reference?

Corsair Force 3 SSD, no temperature sensor

Hi,
I have a fairly large fleet of linux servers (500+) with a few custom 
scripts on them to collect smart data and send it to a back-end database.
Some of the servers have SSD's that identify as:

Model Family:     SandForce Driven SSDs
Device Model:     Corsair Force 3 SSD

According to the manufacturer, these drives do not have temperature 
sensors at all.
Attribute 194 is present in the smart output, (despite being commented 
out normally in the drivedb.h file for this particular drive)
194 Temperature_Celsius     0x0022   128   129   000    Old_age 
Always       -       128 (0 127 0 129 0)
The attribute is always reporting 128, which is causing alerting 
triggers for drive temperature to my administrators.
I can manually edit the drivedb.h and simply change the value to:
194 Ignore_this             0x0022   128   129   000    Old_age 
Always       -       128 (0 127 0 129 0)
However, this means I can no longer update the drive db, as my changes 
would be destroyed.  Is there a way to cause smartctl to ignore a value, 
or rename it in this case?

Since these disks do not have temperature sensors, is there a way that 
the master drivedb.h can have a specific entry to ignore this value for 
this drive?

Thanks very much for your help!

help for documentation

Hello.
I speak not very well english, so i don't understand thay this sentence 
means

"After scanning selected spans, do NOT read-scan remainder of disk".

The context is
SMART Selective self-test log data structure revision number 1
  SPAN  MIN_LBA  MAX_LBA  CURRENT_TEST_STATUS
     1        0        0  Not_testing
     2        0        0  Not_testing
     3        0        0  Not_testing
     4        0        0  Not_testing
     5        0        0  Not_testing
Selective self-test flags (0x0):
   After scanning selected spans, do NOT read-scan remainder of disk.

if the anwser is in french language, i appreciate

smartctl-timeouts_v1.0 scripts (scterc timeout fix)


Hi there,

here are some "smartctl-timeouts" scripts that fix commonly
mismatching defaults with drives that have no error recovery timeout
configured, which has often lead to data loss. (See the README for
further information.)

The scripts are the result of discussions on the linux-raid
mailinglist, but it may be best to ship the scripts with smartctl
already (possibly together with a default "non-redundant-disk" udev rule
to ensure proper default timeouts), and let redundancy controlling
packages like mdadm, lvm, btrfs etc. ship their own udev rules to call
the scripts appropriately.

Please respond whether you'd like to ship the scripts together with
smartctl.

Cheers,
Chris

smartmontools query

I have few doubts with smartmontools, can someone clarify ?

1. Shall I rely on smartctl -H <dev> to see if the device is in good
health ? Or do I need to do further selftest, short or long test ? My
aim is just to find if the disk is fine or not for read and write. We
have a high availability solution and we want to use this utility to
failover to standby node in case of any issue with the disk.

2. Health check with -H option or selftest or short test – are they
handled by the device driver independently ? Or they consume some CPU
cycles ? Any data read or write is involved to run these tests that
takes CPU times ?

3. What exactly -H checks ?

Appreciate reply, thanks!

JMB394 and S.M.A.R.T. passthrough

Greetings,

I have got an interesting SATA DAS device CFI-B4043JDGG [1] that was
based on JMB394 [2] PMP.
The problem is that I can't get SMART data from HDD through JMB394
with smartmontools [3].
The only way to get data is to use some proprietary tool named
"jmicron hw raid manager".
Seems like it uses some proprietary ATA extensions that wasn't
supported but smartmontools.

Could you advise me a way to sniff somehow that ATA commands?
If I can get them then I could try to implement something like
pmpjmicron (by analogy with usbjmicron).
