@peter, @Flox, and @doenietzomoeilijk I may have a relevant thing to chip in with here re:
There is a rather underdeveloped (on the Web-UI side) feature within Rockstor that hides behind the S.M.A.R.T button at the bottom of the Storage Disks page.
Next to the Rescan button:
This in turn leads to a config dialog for smartmontools build in disk test scheduler which includes the ability to email reports:
As can be seen their are, admittedly brief, tooltip directions to achieve a number of things, but again this is much in need of some Web-UI development so that we instead have this option under an advanced tab on a page that otherwise presents sane defaults and some nice schedule options etc. Or it may be that we should have configuration here and scheduling as an option in our System - Schedule section. But as always these things are often more complex than they at first appear. A read of the tooltip suggested man page expands on what is possible.
Basically once you’ve digested what is possible you can forumulate a config line or two and paste it into that box. As I say - underdeveloped on Rockstor’s part and I’ve been meaning to get to improving this for some time now.
Also note that the indicted config file has a wealth of example options so that’s also worth a read. This system is what most scheduled S.M.A.R.T drive test systems are ultimately based on. Once configured it’s pretty good, it’s just that config part that’s the problem really.
Hope that helps.
Note to those involved in the openSUSE migration effort (@Flox namely here); I’m pretty sure the location of that config file, and/or others related to smartmontools is not shared between CentOS and openSUSE so we have additional work to do on that front. @Flox feel free to update our Wiki on this accordingly if you fancy.
