I am trying out FreeNAS 0.7.2 Sabanda (revision 5226) with 4x1TB disks, single parity ZFS RAID.

While the email reports built into FreeNAS are good, I was wondering if there was a way I could get it to email me immediately if a disk fails or does anything suspect, since I can only tolerate a single disk failure.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Have you tried asking this on Serverfault? You may have better luck there for this level of equipment. – steve.lippert Oct 14 '10 at 19:26
Hmm, good point. Have reposted over there. – tomfanning Oct 14 '10 at 23:08
