A new version (5.10) of the monitoring plugin check_smart was released today.
This version introduces a new parameter "-s" (or "--selftest"). By using this switch, an additional check will happen on the SMART's self-test log.
A typical example of such a self-test log entry:
SMART Self-test log structure revision number 1
Num Test_Description Status Remaining LifeTime(hours) LBA_of_first_error
# 1 Extended offline Completed: read failure 10% 10926 962363536
Remember: You can always launch a SMART self-test by running the following command (example on drive /dev/sda):
# smartctl -t long /dev/sda
At first I thought this selftest check should be part of the main check, but there might be some situations where a drive reported errors in the past but were resolved (e.g. sectors meanwhile re-allocated). By using an additional parameter "-s", which can be easily added into existing Nagios/Icinga/NRPE configurations, this doesn't break compatibility.
