SMART-Status Email more details
« on: November 05, 2013, 02:10:00 am »
Hello, I try your Traid in the Moment.
Everything is well, except the Write Perfomance.

But here is another request:  :D

I use the Email Notification (SMART):  8)
I got Negative changes for ST31500341AS: Read Error Rate(previous=46780902 now=47024786) nullNegative changes for ST31500341AS: Read Error Rate(previous=26881956 now=27128805) .  :'(

Ok, but which HDD? There is only the Modell Number... Can you add the Serial oder at least the TraidHDD Name. I have 5 HDD´s of the same kind, its hard to find the right one.  :-\

I would be Happy :)  8)

Any news on this? I have the same problem again:
Negative changes for ATA ST31500341AS SCSI Disk Device: Read Error Rate(previous=150334895 now=223528865), Reallocated Sectors Count(previous=12 now=17)

I dont know which drive it is...

Serial or Flexraid name and everything is fine :)

It's worth noting that Seagate drives use a strange implementation of SMART on their drives and those "errors" that keep cropping up aren't actual a problem.

It actually logs EVERY read/seek error, even the ones it has corrected. There is another SMART field which records corrected errors and as long as the two match, it's not an issue.

I've seen reports across multiple sources about this (I have 3 2TB Seagates in my server and they all do this) and everyone says the same. As long as it is still within threshold, the raw value isn't a problem. In fact, when it gets high enough, it loops back around to 0 and carries on.

However, it would be nice if it didn't generate these "false" errors.

Agreed, I sometimes get several emails a day about it.  I reckon my heart used to skip a beat when the email arrived the first few times.  Would definitely be nice if this particular value for Seagate drives wasn't reported.

New tRaid user here and have been experiencing this same smart email 5 - 10 times a day for one of my seagate HDD's. Makes me not take smart emails seriously due to the volume of false positive emails I get daily for this read error value.

Anyone find a workaround or solution for this besides double checking each one for possible real problems and deleting 10 extra emails a day :)

1. This section is for tRAID. Do not file or add to a thread that does not relate to the product you are using.

2. Transparent RAID users should not be affected if only the latest build. In all cases, you can exclude attributes whichever disk you wish.
Look at the SMART UI for the field where to set the exclusion.
RAID-F users are currently not able to exclude attributes, but the next major release will have such facility.
