Finding current S.M.A.R.T. status


Finding current S.M.A.R.T. status

I use msa$util to give me the current status of the RAID units currently used. In that I can see that the S.M.A.R.T. predictive failure supported and enabled for the disks used.

How can I get from msa$util or via any DCL command(s) the current S.M.A.R.T. status for each disk, the predictive failure warnings & if possible a full breakdown of all of the S.M.A.R.T. values?

Running OpenVMS 8.4 with Update 1000 on Integrity.

Re: Finding current S.M.A.R.T. status

Beyond the add-on HPE error-reporting and diagnostics tools and the MSA$UTIL tool, AFAIK there is no provided means to acquire that data from the disks and the controllers, short of finding or porting or writing code — which will be using the IO$_DIAGNOSE function on a sys$qio[w] call — that fetches and processes and displays the data.
