A new version of check_smart, a monitoring plugin to monitor physical hard, solid state and NVMe drives, is available!

Version 6.7.1 is a bugfix release and solves the usage of the plugin using the long parameter --warn. Before this bugfix, only the short parameter -w was working. The long parameter basically didn't do anything.

 $ ./check_smart.pl -g "/dev/sd[a-c]" -i ata --warn 'Reallocated_Event_Count=2'
check_smart.pl v6.7.0

With the bugfix:

$ ./check_smart.pl -g "/dev/sd[a-c]" -i ata --warn 'Reallocated_Event_Count=2'
OK: [/dev/sda] - Device is clean --- [/dev/sdb] - Device is clean --- [/dev/sdc] - Device is clean|

This fixes the bug mentioned in issue 54.
