Physical Disk Health Check

To determine if any SMART (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) disks are reporting errors to the Operating System this check uses Smartctl and generates an Alert where their status is anything other than OK.

The Physical Disk Check requires smartmontools with this package dependency automatically installed.
