Microway HPC Tech Tip
Monitoring Hard Drive and RAID Health

Abstract: Generally, you won’t find out that one of your hard drives has failed until the data is gone. Even if you are using a software or hardware RAID, it will only continue to function if you replace failed drives. Some RAIDs run in degraded mode for months or years until additional drive failures have ruined any chance of data recovery.

Drives and operating systems are designed to work around issues as best they can until absolute failure. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t monitor the situation and receive an alert as soon as the first problem develops.

We explore two utilities to help manage disks and stay on top of any potential problems.
