Request for 3ware stdin support to smartctl in Linux

Reported by: tneu Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: smartctl Version: 5.41
Keywords: 3ware stdin Cc:


AFAIK, currently Windows versions of smartctl allow piping smart data generated by 3ware tw_cli tool to smartctl, but this feature is not available in Linux.

I would greatly appreciate if it could be possible in the future to let smartctl read from stdin the hex-representation of 3ware-generated smart data and show the contents in human-readable format under Linux too.

There are operating systems where tw_cli is available, but not smartctl. My current issue is related to VMware ESXi with a 3ware controller: with tw_cli running in that environment, I can get a hex table of smart data over ssh to Linux environment, where I would like to decode the data to human readable.

For legacy controllers like 3ware, no new features will be added.
