S.M.A.R.T. for FreeBSD (smartmontools)

S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring hdd, Analysis, and Reporting Technology).
This monitoring system support practically all hdd disks.
You have to install smartmontools for working with smart on FreeBSD. I suggest you have alredy installed it.

#smartctl -a /dev/ad1

This command show you many various indicatos about your disk (rate of hardware read errors, count of reallocated sectors, hdd temperature etc)

You also can run smartd daemon with will ask disks one time per 30minutes

#cp /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf.sample /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf
#vim /usr/local/etc/smartd.conf:
/dev/ad0 -S on -o on -a -I 194 -m admin@howtobsd.com
/dev/ad4 -S on -o on -a -I 194 -m admin@howtobsd.com

add to /etc/rc.conf:

usr/local/etc/>echo 'smartd_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
/usr/local/etc/>echo 'smartd_flags="-l local2 --interval=300"' >> /etc/rc.conf

#/usr/local/etc/rc.d/smartd start

That is all!
