ST1000NM0001 (SAS) no SMART/temperature/age


Recommended Posts

I'm having some issues with getting smart data from a particular type of SAS drive. I'm running a crossflashed IBM M1015 (IT mode, LSI P20 Firmware). Other disks attached to this controller are reporting temperatures and SMART data just fine. 
StableBit scanner is not showing SMART data, temperatures or age. I am able to get some data with Powershell and smartctl. I've also run the Direct I/O test utility. Please see the attached files and quotes below. It would be very nice if we could get some of this data into Stablebit Scanner!
Kind regards,

Just a clarification here:


SAS drives do not use SMART.  Period. End of story. 


They report data in a very different way.  And smrtctrl does read the SAS information.  However, StableBit Scanner doesn't read the SAS info, at this point.  This is something that we would like to add, but it is something that may not be quick to add.  Specifically, we need:

  • SAS hardware (both the controller and drive).  I personally have SAS controllers, but not drives (but that's an easy problem to solve).  And I believe Alex has the same. So testing shouldn't be a problem.
  • Documentation, aka, we need to read over it, and understand how it works first. 
  • Time, aka, time to implement it.  We've been very busy "catching up".  We want to get all the bugs ironed out of our products.  Once that's done, we'll look at adding more features, such as this. 


That said, I am very much interested in adding SAS support to StableBit Scanner, as it would make it that much more useful (and SAS drives are that much better).

Thank you for your reply! I will deploy something with Powershell/smartctl to monitor these drives for now. 


If I can supply any more information that could be useful, or test anything please let me know. I would love to help.
