Wsihlist - screens/emails for S.M.A.R.T. and scrub status

I'm very new to FreeNAS and am happily moving several TBs of archival files to the NAS. It's a very nice product and I really like how the web GUI works. However I'd like to see screens and emails for the S.M.A.R.T. and scrub status.

For S.M.A.R.T a screen and a nightly email telling me all is well and a summary of the readings per hard drive such as temperature. This way I know that the S.M.A.R.T. service is running and monitoring.

For the scrub status the only way to currently see the status of the last Scrub performed is to run a command line on the console. I'd like to see a screen with that information. And an email sent as soon as the scrub is done.

Thanks, Tony

Scrub status is delivered in a nightly email if you have your email setup properly.
As for SMART Testing results, you can create a job that emails you a report as often as you like. Look for my posts and you will find a few scripts that do just that.
