Notification: SMART Status
As someone that's had an abrupt hard disk failure in a UTM, I can also say this should be added! If I had an alert in advance, I could have planned accordingly and possibly even replaced things before complete failure out of hours.
I suggest the Sophos developpers to enable smartd by default, as it is installed by default, but not configured to run.
I configured through SSH, modified smartd.conf, rc-script and provided a sendmail-like script, as mailx is not installed on the boxes by default.

This is absolutely a must have for our customers!

Very important indeed. It's hard to believe that this isn't already available. It's kinda important to know when it detects impending failure.
really needed, diagnosis feautres are never enough! :)

ASG should send an Notification if a periodocally S.M.A.R.T Check of system Harddisks failed.
