SMART

Definitely sounds like a nice feature -- but clearly it will be FAR more useful if this includes automatic notifications when key parameters change [i.e. I don't want messages telling me the power-on hours have changed; but I definitely want to know if the reallocated sector count is climbing.]

 

Ideally, there should be configurable parameters for notifications, so we can choose which attributes will cause notifications when they change.

This feature is not related to displaying SMART data at a point in time. This is about logging SMART data over time for post drive life analysis (e.g. how long did the drive go before suffering any SMART errors, etc.)

Fair enough.  But as I noted, it'd certainly be more useful if there was some notification when key parameters were changing or crossed certain thresholds.  I suspect much of this will be covered in the implementation of notifications => this historical data will clearly be useful in that case, so when you get a notification that a drive's in trouble, you can review the SMART history.

Agreed. That's why this feature is posted under the 6.2 roadmap.

Idea:  What having an option to send this life-to-death information back to limetech... This could build up statistical info on drive usage / lifetime / reliability..

Obviously this needs to be opt in only, so the information would be biased to those willing to participate, but it could still be interesting.
