    question about smart


    Hi
    I have to monitor a few servers with smartmontools, and i cant use smartd for them because i cant have sendmail running on each of them for the email warning. So i made a python script that will check the result of the health test (-H), short test and long test, and it will send me an email if any of them fail.

    So what i would like to know is if are those tests enough to let me know if there will be hard disk failures, or do i need to check those smart attributes also?
