I've noticed in logwatch the following smartd readings of hard disk temperature:

Is this really Celcius degrees? To me it looks more like Fahrenheit. If it
indeed is Celecius it won't take long before the disks melt down :-(

Those look too high for F degrees also.

This is something I see as well. What it actually is if you look over your smart status, you will see the 'real' temp you should see the attribute (using smartctrl --all --device=3ware,2 /dev/twa0) 194 Temperature_Celsius 0x0022 113 105 000 Old_age Always - 34

as opposed to what the reports on my system kick back to me. It seems some calculation is off a bit.

/dev/twa0 [3ware_disk_02] :
Usage: Seek_Error_Rate (7) changed to 200, 100, Usage: Temperature_Celsius (194) changed to 111, 110, 112, 111, 112, 113, 112, 113, 112, 113, 112, 113, 112, 111, 112, 111,

It doesn't reflect the real temp of the hard drive, so it isn't as much of a panic as it would appear. Just erroneous data from the reports.
