- SMART Drive Pre-Failure Monitoring
Directly attached disk drives that are SMART capable are checked daily. Supported disk technologies include P-ATA, S-ATA, SCSI and FC. The administrator can be notified of bad disk drives before they fail and potentially lose data. Notification of a bad SMART status (Pending failure) is done via the notification options configured for the drive.
The Storage Details tab visually shows physical drive status. A physical drive in the warning state (amber colored) is pending failure and has reported a bad SMART status.
