Figuring out an ARD command to look for drives that might be failing.... So far I have grep "I/O" /var/log/system.log which shows I/O errors - not all I/O errors are signs of a drive failing but in larger numbers it's worth a look. But it only looks in the current system.log - older system.logs are .gz'ed and I don't know how to search through them. diskutil info / |grep "SMART" which shows current SMART status - but I've seen that few drives report SMART status to diskutil - if you check with the gui Disk Utility it often reports SMART status for a drive that diskutil doesn't. Anyone know another way to probe SMART status?
