I'm aware that SMART statistics aren't always reliable, but without periodical checking of hdd's health they are completely useless and hdd can fail without warning. Well, it can fail silently even with SMART monitoring on, but on server I'd rather have any available information. Now I have to start smartd manually or put it in rc.local. Same goes for software RAID array monitoring.
I made rc script for smart daemon myself (see http://docs.slackware.com/wiki:user:yenn:s.m.a.r.t
). I haven't made script for mdamd yet, but it shouldn't differ much from rc.smartd. It would be handy if these init scripts were included in official Slackware packages.
Is there a chance to include such scripts in Slackware?
