    SMARTReporter 3.1.17


    SMARTReporter is an application that can warn you of some hard disk drive failures before they actually happen! It does so by periodically polling the S.M.A.R.T. status of your hard disk drives. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a technology built into most modern hard disk drives that acts as an "early warning system" for pending hard disk drive problems. SMARTReporter can notify you of impending hard disk drive failures by a variety of notification options including alert boxes, on-screen notifications and email. The current status of your hard disk drives is also always easily recognizable because SMARTReporter changes its icon (optionally in the menubar) from green to red if a problem occurs. SMARTReporter does not only check for S.M.A.R.T. disk failure predictions but increases failure prediction accuracy by checking for dangerous I/O errors as well. Additionally SMARTReporter can monitor the status of software R.A.I.D. sets for degradation or check free space on the boot disk.

    Please note that a S.M.A.R.T. alert does not mean that your disk will certainly fail completely, nor can S.M.A.R.T. (or I/O-error checking) catch all possible disk problems before they happen - it's just a very valuable indicator. SMARTReporter is NOT a substitute for regular backups especially as it only concerns itself with hardware-level problems (like physical drive failures) and not at all with software-level problems (like filesystem health) that could also destroy all your data.

    S.M.A.R.T. CHECKING
    SMARTReporter periodically checks the built-in S.M.A.R.T. status of all compatible connected disks. S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) is a technology built into most modern hard disk drives that acts as an "early warning system" for pending hard disk drive problems.

    I/O ERROR CHECKING
    SMARTReporter has the unique capability to check the system kernel log-file for occurrences of dangerous "I/O errors" to improve the disk failure prediction accuracy.

    R.A.I.D. CHECKING
    SMARTReporter can automatically check whether connected R.A.I.D. sets become "degraded" or just "offline".

    DISK SPACE CHECKING
    SMARTReporter can also monitor the free disk space because a completely filled boot disk might lead to system lockups.

    NOTIFICATION OPTIONS
    SMARTReporter has completely customizable notification options for all four disk checks including notification via changing application icons, email, alert dialogue, on-screen notification (Growl or OS X 10.8 native), or by launching arbitrary applications / scripts.

    ADVANCED OPTIONS
    SMARTReporter supports a variety of advanced options and tools including automated S.M.A.R.T self-tests, scheduled S.M.A.R.T. attribute checking and plotting graphs of all acquired data over time. Please note that the S.M.A.R.T. self-test/attribute-check features aren't officially supported.

    Compatibility: OS X 10.6.8 or later, 64-bit processor
