Can i run some SMART Tests on the MX-Linux-System?!

Dear Community, 


Can i run some SMART Tests on the MX-Linux-System?!


Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology System (SMART) built into most modern ATA/SATA, SCSI/SAS and NVMe disks. In many cases, these utilities will provide advanced warning of disk degradation and failure. Smartmontools was 
originally derived from the Linux smartsuite package and actually supports ATA/ATAPI/SATA-3 to -8 disks and SCSI disks and tape devices.


it would be great to be able to run some tests on the HDD to see how healthy the HDD is!?

Try GSmartControl. It is installed by default in MX Linux.
