--- Begin Message ---Package: smartmontools Version: 6.5+svn4324-1 Severity: normal Hi. It seems that smartd "double monitors" devices, when explicitly naming them via a symbolic link and using DEVICESCAN in the config file. Consider e.g. the following typical use case: One wants to monitor all devices, but has special settings (e.g. different temperature ranges for one e.g. a SSD which runs at higher temps than an HDD): /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Samsung_SSD_850_PRO_1TB_S252NXAG910017F -d auto -d removable -n standby,4 -a -W 0,50,60 -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner DEVICESCAN -d auto -d removable -n standby,4 -a -W 0,45,50 -m root -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner It also makes sense to use the symbolic link /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Samsung_SSD_850_PRO_1TB_S252NXAG910017F rather than e.g. /dev/sda, as the later is not necessarily a stable name. However, with the above in smartd.conf, smartd output in syslog shows that apparently both devices /dev/disk/by-id/ata-Samsung_SSD_850_PRO_1TB_S252NXAG910017F and /dev/sda (which I assume is still auto-detected by the DEVICESCAN) are now monitored (presumably with different monitoring settings). Cheers, Chris.
