S.M.A.R.T. disk monitoring tools
The smartmontools package contains two utility programs smartctl and smartd to control and monitor storage systems using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology System S.M.A.R.T. built into most modern ATA and SCSI hard disks. It is derived from the smartsuite package, and includes support for ATA/ATAPI/SATA disks and SCSI disks and tape devices.
