Power_On_Hours value is much less then selftest LifeTime(hours)

Hello,

I've recently bought the "new" HDD Hitachi Ultrastar A7K2000 and found the following in the output of the smartctl (check particularly the Power_On_Hours and LifeTime(hours)):

ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME          FLAG     VALUE WORST THRESH TYPE      UPDATED  WHEN_FAILED RAW_VALUE

I'd appreciate if somebody could give an explanation of these numbers.

Attribute 22 "Current Helium Level" for HGST / WD Helium Drives

Hello,
please add ID 22 "Current Helium Level" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.) to your Attribute Description for HGST / WD Helium drives.
Actually smartctl (6.5 2016-05-07 r4318) reported for an WD80EFZX-68UW8N0: ID22 = Unknown_Attribute.

Some behavior: smartctl -A /dev/sdX results in an spinUP of my drive.
strange: all other WD drives (WD40* / WD60*) don´t show such an behavior.

Some suggestions ?

regards putty

McAfee detects Trojan in latest SmartmonTools

Hello Support,

I'm running version:
smartctl 6.4 2015-06-04 r4109 [x86_64-w64-mingw32-win7-sp1] (sf-6.4-1)
Microsort Security Essentials (Windows7/MSE) DOES NOT DETECT ANY VIRUS.

I have a hunch this has been resolved but I just want to double-check.

Thanks,
Phil Richcreek

Possibly. McAfee was not very responsive last time I tried. Thanks, Christian

If --prefix=/usr is used instead of its default (/usr/local), it is 
recommended to set --sysconfdir=/etc and --localstatedir=/var. Otherwise 
nonstandard directories /usr/etc and /usr/var are used. This is not 
needed for the other directories. /usr/sbin and 
/usr/share/{doc,man,smartmontools} are correctly set by --prefix=/usr.

Here a fixed version of above, unneeded --with options are removed:

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var \

Thanks for testing. :)

You might want to enable temperature tracking in smartd.conf. See '-W 
DIFF[,INFO[,CRIT]]' on smartd.conf man page.

new drivedb.h incompatible?

Hi Everyone,

I did download version 6.4
When I tried reinoud <at> router-dev:~/Downloads/smartmontools-6.4$ ./update-smart-drivedb  
./update-smart-drivedb: download from trunk failed (HTTP error)

So this didn't work anymore.
So I changed the SRCEPR in the script to:

SRCEXPR='http://smartmontools.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/smartmontools/$location/smartmontools/drivedb.h?revision=HEAD'

However, now I get a different complaint:

reinoud <at> router-dev:~/Downloads/smartmontools-6.4$ sudo ./update-smart-drivedb -v 
[sudo] password for reinoud:  
Download from branches/RELEASE_6_4_DRIVEDB 
 % Total    % Received % Xferd  Average Speed   Time    Time     Time  Current 
                                Dload  Upload   Total
  Spent    Left  Speed 
100   329  100   329    0     0   1989      0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:--  1993 
/usr/share/smartmontools/drivedb.h.error: rejected by /usr/sbin/smartctl, probably no longer compatible

Should I get the most current source instead of using the 6.4 tarball to make this work?
Thanks,

Reinoud.

Question regarding porting of 'smartctl' features in a Monitoring tool

Hi Support,

Can you please share your thoughts on how to handle the following requirement?


We have been using a home-developed tool for monitoring our infrastructure, and we have been thinking of including few key SMART metrics in the tool (such as Disk Error Rate), so that we can constantly monitor the disk health.


In this regard, I'm trying to see how much would we need from the 'smartmontools' suite to be integrated into our monitoring tool. The SMART metrics displayed by 'smartctl -a' or 'smartctl -A' is sufficient for our monitoring purposes, hence I'm not convinced about porting the entire smartmontools suite. However, looking at the complexity of supporting all types of disks and various platforms (for now, we are targeting Linux and Windows platforms only), I'm not sure on if it's possible to let out some of the files and use only a subset of files to create a new binary, that can provide the features of 'smartctl -A' (or 'smartctl -a'). I would highly appreciate your inputs on how I can handle this requirement. If there is any existing framework or methodology to use these files to customize for specific needs, kindly let me know. Thanks for the help.


Regards,

Arun.

Re: inquiry on adding SAS SSD support to smartctl

Hello,

My name is Wes Slimick, and I work for Sandisk as a FAE in the Bay Area. I'm writing to inquire on how I can get
Sandisk SAS SSDs added to the smartctl support. Our company policy does not allow us to contribute code to
shareware utilities. I am able to provide a sample of each model for the smartmon team to test and add
support to future releases of smartctl.

Thanks,

McAfee detects Trojan in latest SmartmonTools

Hi Support,

 

Please, do you know if there is really a Trojan included in Smartmontools or it is just a false positive?

Could you get in touch with McAfee on this?

Our Server is still putting the file into Quarantine even we are using lates DAT 8142.0000.

 

 

Thanks.

Selective self-test flags (0x0):
  After scanning selected spans, do NOT read-scan remainder of disk.
If Selective self-test is pending on power-up, resume after 0 minute delay.


First of all I know this is some archeology, as smartmontools v5.42 is stoneage, but I don't have anything better on CentOS 5 (yes, an old system still in production).
Well, the problem seems that there are 753 current pending sectors, but the extended test succeeds. Is that a normal behavior ? Honestly it is the first time since I use smartmontools since I see this kind of behavior.
Also, badblocks command doesn't find bad blocks either.
Is there a way to get a list of the bad sectors ?
