       smartd [-X]

       smartd  is  a  daemon that monitors the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology
       System(S.M.A.R.T.) built into ATA-3 and later IDE and SCSI-3 Hard Drives. This is used  to
       check  the  reliability	of the hard drive and predict drive failures.  smartd is   daemon
       designed to notify users of S.M.A.R.T. errors via SYSLOG interface.

       smartd accepts single agrument. The options begin with a '-'. The daemon scans for all ATA
       devices	using the form "/dev/hd*" and SCSI devices using the form "/dev/sd*" that support
       S.M.A.R.T. and have S.M.A.R.T. enabled. It polls these devices every 30	minutes  checking
       for S.M.A.R.T. errors.
