    Is there a command I can run in order to view SMART disk temperatures?

    Thanks.

    Hi:

    smartctl -a /dev/adax | grep temperature

    where x is your disk number, starting at 0 and assuming you are using SATA controllers ;)

    Didnt work, but smartctl -a /dev/daX will show me all info, including temperature which is good enough for my needs.

    Thanks!

    Nice, that worked.

    I probably could have figured that out myself had i remembered that unix/bsd is case sensitive.

    Anyways, thanks to you both.
