comment How can I detect hard drive failures?
Thanks! This is quite helpful. Would a SAS controller have similar functionality available? Also, what types of software could monitor the controllers?

comment How can I detect hard drive failures?
Thanks for the quick response! Often, failed drives give exactly zero indication, and indicators give a very weak suggestion that failure is possible in the near to distant future. Hence, significant sensitivity and specificity issues. See reference #2 here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T
