Manages the smartmontools package including the smartd daemon


Installs the [`smartmontools`](http://smartmontools.sourceforge.net/) package
and enables the `smartd` service.

If your hardware supports it, `smartd` can automatically probe for the drives,
but if they are hidden behind a RAID controller, it will need additional help.
The module includes a facter plugin to identify drives hiding behind an LSI
MegaRAID/Dell PERC controller on Linux systems if you have the LSI proprietary
`MegaCli` tool installed; we don't have any FreeBSD machines with this
controller so haven't written the necessary code to use FreeBSD's standard
`mfiutil(8)` utility instead.  The `shell_config` module is required to edit a
Debian-specific configuration file; other OS families do not require it.

Currently, drives behind an LSI MegaRAID controller will be automatically
probed and added to the `smartd` configuration file, if the `MegaCli` utility
is installed.  There is no way to turn this behavior off.  This is arguably a

It is planned that in a future release the `megaraid` specific facts will be
migrated into the
[`puppet-megaraid`](https://github.com/jhoblitt/puppet-megaraid) module.

### Forked

This is a fork of
[`csail/smartd`](http://tig.csail.mit.edu/wiki/TIG/PuppetAtCSAIL) that was
intially made primarily to fix support of probing `SATA` drives behind a LSI
Megaraid controllers.  The author has been aware of the fork and it's hoped
that the two module can be merged.  Since the initial fork, a number of small
API changes have been made to improve usage.
