This extension uses not only smartctl (smartmontools) but other available tools to determine the existance of an HDD and as much as possible of its status.

As a Zabbix "auto-discovery" process, these results can reflect changes in available HDD in near-to-real-time.


  • Assists with HDD health maintenance and monitoring where health is a combination of: a) does device exist; b) does smartctl have anything useful to say about it; c) are there possible special storage system issues; d) possibly other system status related commands; it should be noted that not all HDD have full smartctl data pages and some have none.
  • Works with internal and external/attached HDDs
  • Can be modified for remote/commercial storage systems
  • Included definitions for error triggers and status values can be changed as needed
  • iSCSI HDD detection and status reporting has been added
  • Monitored data displayed can be limited to any one of the defined filters (tags)
  • Support for ZFS pools has been added
  • Multiple Levels of Status are tracked: 5 for general HDD; 5 for iSCSI; 4 for ZFS
