Package content :

SeaChest_SMART diagnostic software.

Disk drives are constantly monitoring and analyzing their own performance,
integrity and environment. The current state of this technology is the result
of more than 20 years of innovative Seagate engineering focused on self-testing


SeaChest_Security diagnostic software.

SeaChest_Security is a comprehensive command line tool that can be used to
configure, change or set various properties on Seagate disk drives (this
includes Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung and LaCie). Some commands may cause existing
data on the drive to become inaccessible. Some commands may affect the
performance of the drive.

SeaChest_PowerChoice diagnostic software.

Optimization within the framework of a complex company data center requires
dynamic technology. As storage capacity demands increase due to virtualization
and growing volumes of data, managing power usage in an intelligent way is
critical for reducing TCO. Seagate PowerChoice technology—specifically
developed for enterprise environments—offers more energy efficiency and control
over the amount of power hard drives consume.

SeaChest_GenericTests diagnostic software.

One of the fundamental units of data on a storage device like a disk drive is
the sector. In the case of a hard disk drive, a sector is a physical section
of a circular magnetized track accessed by read write heads over the rotating
media. The original hard drive sectors are 512 bytes each. If you take the
number or logical sectors on a disk drive and multiply it by 512 you get the
total capacity of the drive in bytes. Since the mid-1990's the term sector has
been replaced by an acronym synonym LBA, which stands for Logical Block
Address. All drives start with LBA 0 and count up to the full capacity of the
drive.

SeaChest_Firmware diagnostic software.

SeaChest_Firmware is a comprehensive command line tool that can be used to
update firmware, also known as microcode, on Seagate disk drives (this includes
Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung and LaCie).

SeaChest_Erase diagnostic software.

SeaChest_Erase is a comprehensive command line tool that can be used to
efficiently erase data on Seagate disk drives (this includes Seagate, Maxtor,
Samsung and LaCie).

NOTE: SeaChest_Erase may not be fully functional on non-Seagate drives.


SeaChest_Configure diagnostic software.

SeaChest_Configure is a comprehensive command line tool that can be used to
configure, change or set various properties on Seagate disk drives (this
includes Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung and LaCie). Some commands may cause existing
data on the drive to become inaccessible. Some commands may affect the
performance of the drive.

NOTE: SeaChest_Configure may not be fully functional on non-Seagate drives.

SeaChest diagnostic software.

This User Guide file contains important information about SeaChest.
Please read this entire file before using this software.

SeaChest is a comprehensive, easy-to-use command line diagnostic tool that
helps you quickly determine the health and status of your Seagate storage
product. It includes several tests that will examine the physical media on your
Seagate, Samsung or Maxtor disk drive.

Tests and commands which are completely data safe will run on any disk drive.
Tests and commands which change the drive (like firmware download or data
erasure or setting the maximum capacity, etc) are limited to Seagate disk
drives (this includes Seagate, Maxtor, Samsung and LaCie). Be careful using
SeaChest because some of the features, like the data erasure options, will
cause data loss. Seagate is not responsible for lost user data.

Qts 4.2.2 is the latest version (at least for 853A)
So, how to work this app only from 4.3.0 up?! This Qts does not exist.

4.3.0 Beta program will start soon

recent models will migrate to 64 bit... actually SeaChest only works on 64bit NAS (not time to tweak it for 4.2)

Great tool to alter the power management settings of Seagate's >6TB NAS drives as this doesn't work with hdparm on those. Standard Seagate settings create many LCC counts. Thanks Stephane!

So how is this different from using the power management settings in QTS (HDD sleep after x minutes)?

Well, the firmware of the drive has his own mix of power management settings as well, kicking in sooner already causing constant headparking. See viewtopic.php?f=55&t=130439 .

I read some of that post before and even after googling headparking there didn't seem to be a consensus either way. Some even think it's a myth. Thoughts?

Forgive my ignorance, but once I have this installed, how can I run a "SeaChest_PowerChoice" command? I tried using the console that the app provides, but the command isn't recognised.
