Receiving email notification from smartd (smartmontools)
To get information about my HDD drive condition, I configured smartmontools daemon (through smartd.conf) like this:
dev/sdb -I 194 -a -o on -S on -s (S/../.././03|L/../../6/04) \
-m email@example.com \
-M exec /usr/share/smartmontools/smartd-runner
Also, by adding “-M test”, I tested email notifications and received test email message.
As you see, each morning my HDD is short tested, but I didn’t receive any email notification about test results.
Probably, notifications are sent when something is getting wrong, am I right on this point? I mean, is it normal not to receive anything if tests are passed ok?
Right now my drive reports OK status with “smartctl -H” command. I use Debian Etch and Sendmail.
Thanks a lot.
