Telegraf: input.smart is not working

Hi,

I am using the latest Telegraf v1.12.5 running on FreeBSD server.
I configured input.smart plugin as folows:
[[inputs.smart]]
# path = “/usr/bin/smartctl”
# use_sudo = false
# nocheck = “standby”
attributes = false
# excludes = [ “/dev/pass6” ]
# devices = [ “/dev/ada0 -d atacam” ]
# timeout = “30s”

It seems that this plugin is not working as expected for my SMART enabled device – smart_attribute measurement is not created and no records are added.
Any help will be appreciated.

Here is the output of smartctl commands:

zodiac: # smartctl --scan
/dev/ada0 -d atacam # /dev/ada0, ATA device
/dev/ses0 -d atacam # /dev/ses0, ATA device

zodiac: # smartctl --info --health --attributes --tolerance=verypermissive --nocheck nocheck --format=brief  /dev/ada0

=======> INVALID ARGUMENT TO -n: nocheck
=======> VALID ARGUMENTS ARE: never, sleep, standby, idle <=======

Use smartctl -h to get a usage summary

Hello @Radim_Machu,
Thanks for your question. Have you tried setting debut=True? What’s the output?

Hi,

Have you tried setting debut=True

did you mean debug=True in telegraf.conf?

@Radim_Machu,
Yes sorry for the typo.

I 've got same trouble:

Hi
I using smart plugin on telegraf. The testing mode works with strange ouput.

telegraf -config /etc/telegraf/telegraf.d/input-smartctl.conf -test -input-filter smart

2019-11-27T21:43:11Z I! Starting Telegraf 1.12.6

smart_attribute,capacity=32017047552,device=sda,enabled=Enabled,fail=-,flags=------,host=uxvirt01.extein.intra.com,id=1,model=TS32GSSD370S,name=Raw_Read_Error_Rate,serial_no=E538560149,wwn=57c354814a1fb895 exit_status=0i,raw_value=0i,threshold=0i,value=100i,worst=100i 1574890992000000000

On chronograf, only “exit-status” get mesurements as exit code.
Only the exit code are stored on base with list of device.
What’s wrong ?
