    I don't have pfsense running on real hardware but

    camcontrol identify disk (like ada0 or whatever your disk is)

    Maybe with….. "Diagnostics --> SMART Status --> Info --> View"  ;D

  • I´ve got it in my pfsense as ptt says

    diagnostics –> smart status -->select option "info", device "ada0" pres "View" and brings me this info:

    SMART support is: Available - device has SMART capability.

    U must have SMART compatibility, support or capabilities (excuse me, don´t remember the specific term) enabled on BIOS.
