smartmontools: monitoring S.M.A.R.T. disks and devices
Sat Nov 12 15:25:00 GMT 2005
I would like to contribute and maintain the smartmontools package
With the (re?)appearance of syslogd, the "smartd" daemon starts to get
useful on Cygwin.
I recently added support to run smartd as service via cygrunsrv,
including the ability to install/remove/control service via
# proposed setup.hint for smartmontools
sdesc: "Utilities for monitoring S.M.A.R.T. disks and devices"
ldesc: "Smartmontools contains utility programs (smartctl, smartd)
to control/monitor storage systems using the Self-Monitoring, Analysis
and Reporting Technology System (S.M.A.R.T.) built into most modern
ATA and SCSI disks. In many cases, these utilities will provide
advanced warning of disk degradation and failure.
Project home page is at http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/"
requires: cygwin cygrunsrv
If there is any interest, I will provide test packages build from
current CVS soon.
BTW: The "event message file" tool syslogevt.exe included in the native
Windows version of smartmontools works also for event log messages
generated by Cygwin.
