I am using Red Hat Linux Enterprise 2.4

I need a simple HD temp monitor for SATA hard drives, preferably an RPM, and also preferably something that can log to a CSV.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Unfortunately smartd does not monitor SATA drives...

Smartmontools can do it *but* you must have configured your SAT drive to appear as an IDE drive:

They are already configured as SATA drives and they are up, running and in use. I don't want to bring the server down to reconfigure the drives now.

In my SUSE10.1 box i have a utility called "hddtemp" which seems to do what you need.

Home: http://www.guzu.net/linux/hddtemp.php
sources are at: http://www.guzu.net/files/hddtemp-0.3-beta15.tar.bz2

you may need a recent kernel with sata passthrough

Will the automatic update feature update the kernel to the most recent version?
