I would run a SMART long test and check the SMART attributes. This can be done with smartctl if it is installed, and if the HDDs support it.

After being registered here for ten years, and asking questions similar to this many times, you'd think that you'd have some idea on how to do basic server monitoring by now.

Chances are if a drive is failing, it will put some message(s)/error(s) into your system logs. Have you looked there? What does your server monitoring system tell you? What does it support???
