Active SMART - hard drive diagnostic

Active SMART for SCSI drives - test and monitor SCSI hard drives

If you want to monitor the health status of SCSI drives then you can try Active SMART SCSI version. It supports SCSI hard drives and SCSI RAID arrays. This version recognizes up to 4 IDE/ATA and up to 8 SCSI drives. We can add support for more SCSI or IDE devices upon your request.

(If you do not have SCSI drives in your system, or do not know what it is then please check out the regular version of ActiveSMART to check health status of ATA/SATA hard drives)

Active SMART SCSI version supports S.M.A.R.T. technology on both IDE (ATA) and SCSI devices. However SCSI drives use another method of reporting their S.M.A.R.T. status, in concordance with S.M.A.R.T. implementation for IDE devices. They do not report detailed information about supported attributes and do not support reporting of detailed statistics about S.M.A.R.T. attributes.

However SCSI drives report overall health status of the disk and a set of vital disk parameters - such as Defect list, hard drive temperature and other.
Active SMART monitors disk health status and uses other health-status disk features of SCSI drives to provide early notification about possible drive failure.

Also Active SMART for SCSI supports the SCSI hard drive thermal sensors and can be used to trace the hard drive temperature to prevent its overheating.

Important note:
When Active SMART is to be used to monitor SCSI drives or RAID arrays, the WINASPI driver must be loaded and started on both Windows 95/98 and Windows NT/2000/XP machines. The ASPI driver handles communications between the SCSI controller and the system. The driver is NOT normally required for Hard Disk Drives to function if no other SCSI devices are present. If the WINASPI Driver is not installed Active SMART will not be able to monitor the S.M.A.R.T. Alerts issued by the drive, nor will drive information be displayed. All other functions of Active SMART are not affected.
You can download ASPI driver from Adaptec website here
