QUESTION: 10.3: Get hard disk SMART status from the command line
Authored by: DaddyWags on Nov 29, '03 11:33:39AM

Question: Is the SMART status verified a) when the diskutil utility is run, b) only at boot-up, or c) once every xx hrs?

Does anybody know the answer?

For some reason I have it in my head that the SMART status is checked maybe only at boot-up, status is stored somewhere, and then diskutil simply retrieves the status from that "somewhere".

Am I wrong?
