Checking SMART status on a 3Ware controller with smartctl

A RAID controller hides the physical disks from the operating system, so it’s harder to query the SMART data. Luckily, smartctl has a way to do it:

smartctl -a -d 3ware,1 /dev/twa0

Change the 1 to the drive number in question, starting at 0.
