Dell H800 Perc Smart Attributes Multiple Drives

Reported by: Kevin Owned by: Kevin Rogers
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: smartctl Version: 6.2
Keywords: megaraid linux Cc: Kevrog85@…

Description

I am running Centos 6.4 with Smartmontools v5.42. I am trying to run Smartctl -a -d megaraid,0 /dev/sda to pull smart information on multiple disks behind a Perc controller. I know that I am specifying megaraid,0 to show disk 0. How do I get smartmontools to show smart stats of multiple drives at once? is this possible? I want to get smart attributes for up to as many drives as possible at once behind my controller.(15-90drives daisy chained in SANs) I'm testing this on a Perc 6 but I want to deploy this behind H800 Perc.

It is not possible to print info of more than one device with one smartctl run. There are no plans to implement this.

For devices which appear in smartctl --scan output, this could be done with a simple wrapper script. This should work for the -d megaraid,N device type since smartmontools 6.1.

Replying to chrfranke:

Thanks chrfranke!
When I run:

smartctl --scan -a -d megaraid,0 /dev/sda

I get:

DeviceScan with pattern not yet implemented

I am currently testing this on a perc 6 and just trying to read multiple drives in my server at once. For deployment it will be an H800 behind network attached storage. Any other ideas? How do I implement the devicescan pattern?

Thanks for the help!

The info was misleading, sorry. The smartctl --scan does not work in conjunction with -d megaraid,N or a device name.

The following script may work for your use case:

#!/bin/sh

options="-H -A"

/usr/sbin/smartctl --scan \
| while read dev opt type comment; do
   case "$dev $opt $type" in
     /dev/sda\ -d\ megaraid,*)
       echo "smartctl $opt $type $options $dev"
       /usr/sbin/smartctl $opt $type $options $dev
       echo "======================================="
       ;;
    esac
  done

(Requires smartctl >= 6.1)

smartctl 6.2 supports --scan-open for the megaraid controller.

comment:6 Changed 5 years ago by Kevin

I'm using Smartctl v6.2 There seems to be a problem with that script at the

/usr/sbin/smartctl --scan \

Im new to linux and just trying to set up a testing station for my enterprise. I appreciate your help with the script. I cant get it to work as of now. Any other thoughts?

Again, please do
smartctl --scan-open
and provide here result.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by Kevin

when i run:

smartctl --scan-open  

I get: #

# /dev/sda -d scsi # /dev/sdb, SCSI device open failed: DELL or megaraid controller, please try adding '-d megaraid,N'
# /dev/sdb -d scsi # /dev/sdb, SCSI device open failed: DELL or megaraid controller, please try adding '-d megaraid,N'

Is it result from smartmontools 6.3?
