After using Dru Lavigne's excellent article http://tinyurl.com/da66a about Raid-1 I have a full Raid-1 mirror on a new rack server. I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how best to monitor the hardware status to detect imminent failure of one of the disks? Do I use something like smartctl in a cron or what?
When you installed smartmontools to get smartctl, it should have also installed smartd. It will run in the background and notify you of significant changes. man smartd for details. - Bob _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
