I'm used to analyze the output of smartctl -A using grep on specific attributes. Example:

smartctl 5.41 2011-06-09 r3365 [x86_64-linux-3.2.0-4-amd64] (local build)

How can I make it show?
Or what is the new way to analyze it?

Your new HGST drive is a SAS drive, not a SATA drive.

SAS drives do not provide a relatively standard table of SMART attributes as SATA drives do.

From the smartmontools FAQ:

SCSI/SAS and NVMe drives do not provide ATA/SATA-like SMART Attributes. Therefore the drive database does not contain any entries for these drives. This may change in the future as some drives provide similar info via vendor specific commands (see ticket #870).

Some vendors' SAS drives do provide similar vendor-specific functionality, as the maintainers noted in the FAQ.

Most of the interesting information is already present here anyway, e.g. drive temperature, error correction statistics, self-test reports. For this drive, at least, it's not likely you need any data that isn't already exposed.
