Show last SMART stats for spun down disks.
If a disk is spun down, it generally does not respond to SMART queries. Therefore Netgear doesn't query them when it is spun down.
Currently, during spin down the temperature field next to the disk (on the performance tab) is blanked. If you click on the disk icon, you see -1s in all the SMART stats. When the disk is spun up, after a short lag (up to 3 minutes) the temperature and stats are shown.
I want to always be able to see the disk health, even if it is spun down at the moment.
- adding the spin up/down status to the SMART stats - with the time that the disk entered that state.
- adding the time when the SMART stats were last queried.
- showing the last SMART status available when the disk is spun down.
- Perhaps showing "spun down" in the temperature field instead of blanking it.
