of ActiveSMART by Ariolic Software Printer
you looking for a simple and effective way to prevent and predict
hard disk failures? Are you an IT professional looking to add a
hard disk monitoring utility to your software arsenal? Is your data
simply too important to risk data loss? If you answer yes to any
of these questions, ActiveSMART by Ariolic Software is for you.
This superb program is designed to monitor the health of your hard
drives and predict imminent hardware failures to prevent data loss
by reading the S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring and Reporting Technology)
attributes of your hard drive. ActiveSMART analyzes up to 25 manufacturer
parameters of your hard drive and creates detailed reports about
the disk state. It also allows users to preview the raw values of
the SMART attributes, including how long the disk has been running
and the number of read/write errors.
ActiveSMART allows users to control the temperature of their hard
drives. This feature is very important as overheating may result
in a catastrophic drive failure, which may lead to total data loss.
ActiveSMART monitors the drive temperature and alerts the user when
it gets too hot by displaying a pop-up message, playing a sound,
and even sending a network message or an email. This leads me to
the next unique feature of this program – the notification
System administrators can be notified of an impending drive failure
on any machine in the network via ActiveSMART’s internal messaging
system. Moreover, ActiveSMART has a built-in SMPT client which means
that it can send out email notifications about the drive status,
even when no mail software is installed on the computer. These features
give system administrators the ability to monitor all the hard drives
in a network without actually having to check each one physically.
What’s more, ActiveSMART can be set up to take action once
the state of the hard drive changes – simply enable the emergency
shutdown feature and ActiveSMART will automatically put your computer
into hibernate if the drive overheats.
ActiveSMART is an excellent tool for end users and IT professionals
alike. With its customizable features, automation capabilities and
low usage of system memory,
this program is well worth looking at. You can find the fully-functional
