Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) is an industry standard. S.M.A.R.T. performs disk monitoring and testing. It checks drive reliability and predicts hardware failures.
|Check Interval||Enter the time in minutes for smartd to wake up and check if any tests are configured to run.|
|Power Mode||Select the power mode from the dropdown list. Options are Never, Sleep, Standby or Idle. S.M.A.R.T. only tests when the Power Mode is Never.|
|Difference||Enter a number of degrees in Celsius. S.M.A.R.T. reports if a drive temperature changes by N degrees Celsius since the last report.|
|Informational||Enter a threshold temperature in Celsius. S.M.A.R.T. sends a message with a LOG_INFO log level if the temperature is above the threshold.|
|Critical||Enter a threshold temperature in Celsius. S.M.A.R.T. sends a message with a LOG_CRIT log level and send an email if the temperature is above the threshold.|
