My server has 2 harddisks. I've installed smartmontools on Debian with
apt-get install smartmontools, enabled it in /etc/default/smartmontools (start_smartd=yes) and started the daemon (
My /etc/smartd.conf contains this:
DEVICESCAN -d removable -n standby -m email@example.com -M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
Is the smartmontools now configured to run regular health checks? If so, how do I see when it does that? I don't see any indication in
smartctl -l selftest of health checks being run regularly; the command only showed the two tests I recently ran manually. I also don't see anything in /var/log/messages that indicates regular health checks are being run.
