I'm looking for a nice SCSI RAID S.M.A.R.T. monitoring software.

I have 30+ servers and have been experiencing hard drive failure on a couple.  I need a software package that will monitor the SCSI disks (some in RAID arrays, others stand-alone) and email me if there's a problem.

I've seen a couple software packages (Intelli-SMART, ActiveSMART), but they were either old or incompatible.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

For directly attached disks you can use smartmontools -- http://smartmontools.sf.net.

I briefly checked that out before... it seemed to be a command line tool and a bit too hard to use out-of-the-box.  Is there a gui, or is it an open-source mess? :)

There's no GUI, sorry. Take it or leave it :-)

Do you know of any others?  Something commercial?  I love figuring stuff like this out, but I don't have time to mess with something complicated like smartmontools.

No, I don't know of any commercial products like smartmontools; they must exist, I just don't need them.
