Q10111403 - Can SMART data be read from HDDs connected to Areca RAID controllers?

You can use a third party utility such as Smartmontools (http://sourceforge.net/projects/smartmontools/). Smartmontools added support for SATA drives behind Areca SATA/SAS controllers on Linux, FreeBSD and Windows, allowing customer using the Areca's entire family PCI-X and PCI-Express series of high performance SAS/SATA RAID controllers and need of a way to control and monitor storage systems. Smartmontools function can support from firmware 1.5.1 and windows driver version or later. You can reference the http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/smartmontools/wiki/Supported_RAID-Controllers to get more information about the smartmontools package.
