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

Version 6.13.0 introduces a new parameter --skip-temp-check, which allows to skip the comparison current vs. maximum (reported) drive temperature. This could make sense when smartctl does not detect the exact model of the physical drive and shows wrong maximum thresholds for the temperature.

This situation is very rare though, using the --skip-temp-check parameter is therefore not advised.

Furthermore this new release also improves the plugin's handling when the required smartctl command is missing or not executable. Thanks to Peter Newman for the contribution!
