    Please tell me what this smartctl report means:

    Hi all,

    I just saw that smartctl gave me the following report for my SAMSUNG HM160HI:

    Code:
    ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME          FLAG     VALUE WORST THRESH TYPE      UPDATED  WHEN_FAILED RAW_VALUE
      1 Raw_Read_Error_Rate     0x000f   100   100   051    Pre-fail  Always       -       7

    192 Power-Off_Retract_Count 0x0032   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       31

    197 Current_Pending_Sector  0x0012   100   100   000    Old_age   Always       -       793
    198 Offline_Uncorrectable   0x0030   100   100   000    Old_age   Offline      -       2508
    199 UDMA_CRC_Error_Count    0x0036   252   252   000    Old_age   Always       -       0

    There seems to be some scary stuff there, such as the insanely high values for Start_Stop_Count and Reallocated_Event_Count and the high value for Offline_Uncorrectable. My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1400 and only a couple of months old. I didn't notice any failures and both fsck and badblocks report no problems at all. How worried should I be?

    Guys?

    Sorry for bumping this, but I'm very worried.

    I think its likely those numbers are incorrect for some reason or another. The start/stop on my 6 year old desktop is 1067, and my laptop is 4882, and its only a year or so old. Neither of my computers have the other number. I'd do some googling and look for some information on what these counts are before I get all worried.
    100 buckets of bits on the bus,
    100 buckets of bits,
    Take one down, short it to ground,
    FF buckets of bits on the bus.

    Thanks, Whiffle.

    By the way, I'm also wondering why there's no Load_Cycle_Count listed.
    How can I know if I'm suffering from the infamous head parking problem if it's not listed?

    Can someone shed a light on this?

    Re: Please tell me what this smartctl report means:

    Okay, I'm getting more and more confused...

    If I understood correctly, the VALUE field is nothing more than a normalized version of RAW VALUE. So why the RAW VALUE of Reallocated_Event_Count, Current_Pending_Sector and Offline_Uncorrectable are increasing quite rapidly while VALUE stays unaltered?

    Need some help from a S.M.A.R.T. expert...
