Change standby (spindown) timer of WDEARS20

Reported by: woutdenolf Owned by: somebody
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: all Version: 6.1
Keywords: Cc:


Reading the manual of smartctl (version 6.1), I was under the impression that I could set the standby (spindown) timer of my WDEARS20 disks like this:

smartctl -d areca,1 -g standby,254 /dev/sg6

However this is not a valid argument to -g:
=======> INVALID ARGUMENT TO -g: standby,255
=======> VALID ARGUMENTS ARE: aam, apm, lookahead, security, wcache, rcache <=======

Is this a bug or did I misinterpret something?

Thanks in advance,

PS, The tool idle3ctl would also be able to do the job, but my disks happen to be behind an Areca RAID controller.

Try -s or --set to change a value. Option -g is the short version of --get. There is no get command for the standby timer.

That works, thanks!
