Now we are responsible for porting GPL-licensed smartmontools to sfw.
Here is its brief introduction:
smartmontools contains utilities that control and monitor storage
devices using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology
(S.M.A.R.T.) system build into ATA and SCSI Hard Drives. This is used
to check the reliability of the hard drive and to predict drive
failures. smartmontools Version 5.x is designed to comply to the
ATA/ATAPI-5 specification (Revision 1). Future releases of
smartmontools (Versions 6.x and 7.x) will comply with the ATA/ATAPI-6
and ATA/ATAPI-7 specifications.
This package is meant to be an up-to-date replacement for the
ucsc-smartsuite and smartsuite packages, and is derived from that
