DESCRIPTION
       smartctl  controls the Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technol-
       ogy (SMART) system built into many ATA-3 and later ATA, IDE and  SCSI-3
       hard  drives. 

Smartctl is even able to probe devices inside a 3ware raid. 
Unfortunately scsi smart support is not as common as ide smart...
