Such limits are platform and controller specific.

Please describe your use case (Platform, RAID-Controller, smartd.conf).

We're running in JBOD setup (60 drives per host) - Dell Server, Win2008 R2, HBA SAS LSI 3000 series 1068E.

Our other utilities can detect all the drives but I wanted to explore smartmon.

See attached smartd.conf.

Also, is there any syntax to display all possible info for SATA and SAS? I am still going through the changelist but appreciate if there is one available already.

Thanks in advance

This is a limitation of pseudo device names sdX and smartd DEVICESCAN.
Please use device names pdN (N=0...255) instead.

If the controller firmware provides a SAT conforming INQUIRY result, the following should work to display all possible info for the last drive regardless of device type

smartctl -x -d sat,auto pd59

The following smartd.conf should work to monitor all drives:

DEFAULT -d sat,auto -d removable [...more directives]
pd0
pd1
...
pd59

Both -d sat,auto and DEFAULT require at least smartmontools 5.43. Please test new smartmontools 6.0 if possible.
