I have seen a resurgence of interest in vintage computing. Since I used many of these old and amazing systems when I started my never-ending learning about Software Development and Computer Science, I decided to start a small series of how-tos, helping those interested in learning how to develop code for vintage computers.
In this article we have a look at how to check disks health status using SMART and smartctl on Linux OS (RHEL, CentOS, PacketLinux and Debian/Ubuntu/KALI based distros), macOS and BSD systems.
We keep going with the series of articles about exploring a Linux System with the next step that is Exploring a Process.
In this set of super-quick “how-tos” we’ll see how to explore a Linux System via CLI (command line). How to check release, architecture, platform, files, logs, processes, devices and other useful info to start troubleshooting or maintaining a Linux System.
