You could also run the following command immediatly, without having
to wait for the daemon to collect data:
# smartctl -a /dev/ad6
and consider running a long test as well:
# smartctl -t long /dev/ad6
followed by another "smartctl -a /dev/ad6" again once the
test completes (the drive will tell you how long it takes,
expect something like 30 to 45 minutes or so, depending on
the size and speed of the drive).
