Any simple tool to check SMART values?

Hi! I’m looking for a simple tool to check the most important SMART values for disks in my server (Linux, Centos). Are you using any good software which can you recommend for me?

yum install smartmontools
smartctl -a /dev/sda

As random as this sounds, once you get smartmontools installed as recommended by @Pentium100, install snapraid. Without having to use any of the snapshot raid features of the program, just running snapraid smart will provide a formatted table of each of your drives including a probability of failure. A while back, I’d asked about the background behind the calculation, and got some feedback from the author. My suggestion is to use it as an initial survey of your drives before doing a deep dive into SMART attributes.
