graphic, representation

To get a visual representation of hard drive temperatures, I wrote a small script. The output of this script looks like this:

This output is tailored to the exact disk lay-out of my storage server. However, it is also usable for other servers. You have to edit the lay-out depending on the system.

This script assumes that you have smartmontools installed on your system. It uses smartctl to obtain the drive temperatures.

The script can be found here or here in tgz format.
