RESEARCH 》 Detect and Monitor Failing Harddrive in Linux - My Seagate 500GB HDD Died

My 500GB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM hard-drive suddenly started making mild clicking noise. I found this happening since morning. I was suspicious that something wrong in this drive and when I opened the Linux Disks app, I can find the cause of this issue. The disk is increasingly getting read errors. Besides I can see various other parameters such as Power-On Hours, Temperature, Head flying hours, etc.

It is quite strange that I never much noticed this tab of a failing disk in the Disks application so thought documenting the same so that you can also monitor the health of your harddrives and SSD drives while it is still partially working. This way you may recover any important files just in case before the drive gets fatally damaged and or data gets lost/corrupt.

You can locate the Disks Application in Ubuntu as shown below:
Disks Linux Application

As you can see below I got two drives installed. One is Seagate 500GB hard drive and the other one is Transcend 128GB SSD drive. The Assessment tells you minor warnings for now such as 2 bad sectors. But it is not sufficient to monitor the drive.

So you can open the SMART Data & Self-Tests tab and you get in-depth SMART Attributes. In this you can find detailed information regarding drive read errors, etc, as well as some other interesting data.

Now let me compare the same with the working drive which is Transcend 128GB SSD Drive.

You can see the SMART Data & Self-Tests tab and you get in-depth SMART Attributes of this working Transcend 128GB SSD Drive. If you notice since it is SSD drive the SMART Attributes information is bit different than the traditional Hard drive.

Optionally if you do a Start Self-Test you may get updated Overall Assessment as shown below which shows SELF-TEST FAILED. This is a clear indication it is time to take backups if any, erase the drive, format the drive and purge it ASAP.

Notice the drive temperature slightly increased after the drive Self-Test.

Here is my first software development update of TOFFEE-Butterscotch. In my first TOFFEE-Butterscotch news update I have introduced about TOFFEE-Butterscotch research, project specifications, use-cases, etc. Introducing TOFFEE-Butterscotch Alerts: These are simple packet counters which corresponds to the filter type. For example if the incoming TCP-SYN packets are blocked then its corresponding alert counter will increment whenever such a packet arrives and gets filtered (dropped).

Benchmark Raspberry Pi and other embedded SoC with TrueBench ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TrueBench is an unique open-source benchmarking system in which the core system performance and efficiency parameters are measured at extreme high resolution in the order of several million/billion µ-seconds for a given specific task. TrueBench is a part of The TOFFEE Project research. With TrueBench Raspberry Pi 3, Raspberry Pi 2B and Raspberry Pi 2 are benchmarked and you can do a comparative analysis with standard mainstream x86 devices.

My sample Wireshark packet capture files for research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I have a huge repository (or collection) of sample Wireshark packet capture files for reference. I use them extensively for research and development of TOFFEE as well to understand various protocol PDUs and protocol standards. I personally collected various test captures via Wireshark during my test and experimental research setup during the course of TOFFEE development. Say if you are a student and learning Networking and or say VoIP data and VoIP packets, you can analyse my VoIP sample Wireshark captures. Or in other case assume you are doing some quick research (or development) and want to refer few handful of VoIP packets then you can download and analyse my sample packet capture files.

Communication data network standards and data transfer speeds :: Chart ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is a complete chart comprising popular communication data network standards and their respective transfer rates. I hope this reference chart will help network engineers and network software developers while performing networking tests and experiments, building WAN/network products, building WAN simulated networks of a specific standard and so on. This may also helps us to track technological advancements of communication data networks.

Off-Grid Solar Power System for Raspberry Pi ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you choose to use your Raspberry Pi device as your IoT based remote weather station or if you are building Linux kernel (like kernel compilation) within the same, you need a good uninterrupted power source (UPS). But if you are using it on site or in some research camping location you can choose to power your Raspberry Pi device with your custom off-grid solar power source.
