#64 accepted enhancement

Replace DEVICESCAN by something more flexible

Reported by: Christian Franke Owned by: Christian Franke
Priority: minor Milestone: unscheduled
Component: all Version: 5.39.1
Keywords: smartd.conf Cc: dma_k@…

Description

It would be more flexible if names with wildcards and multiple names in a line could be specified in smartd.conf. For example:

 /dev/sdb /dev/sdc /dev/sdd -d scsi -a
 /dev/sda /dev/sd[e-h]      -d sat -a
 /dev/sd[a-z]               -a

If duplicate devices appear in the expanded list, the first one should take precedence.

Would be nice to have that syntax supported, as in my case I have several drives I want to apply the same configuration. Now I have to duplicate lines only changing the drive path.

/dev/sda -a -W 5,45,55 -d sat -n standby -m root
/dev/sdd -a -W 5,45,55 -d sat -n standby -m root
/dev/sdc -a -W 5,45,55 -d sat -n standby -m root

Replying to dma_k:

Please try the DEFAULT setting:

DEFAULT -a -W 5,45,55 -d sat -n standby -m root
/dev/sda
/dev/sdd
/dev/sdc

Available since smartmontools 5.43 (r3494).
