#218 closed enhancement (duplicate)

DEVICESCAN -d removable

Reported by: mokrates Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: smartd Version: 5.42
Keywords: Cc: Nathan Stratton Treadway



As I have seen some broken USB-Harddisks now, I would like to submit a WISH:

smartd, when started with options for devicescan and being told, they could be removable, and seeing that smart-notifier connects to smartd via dbus:
couldn't smartd check usb-disks when they're connected after starting smartd? (using udisks dbus interface or somesuch) And if it does so already, please document it (then I woulnd't have asked).

Thank you VERY much for great work, which repeatedly saved me from data-loss.

Hotplug support in general is an open issue.

I think that you can achieve this by sending HUP to the running smartd. Please, provide feedback if it works for you
