As well, for monitoring, I suggest you to monitor the disks with smartd
(apt-get install smartmontools). You will need an MTA to receive the
warnings. This helps a lot when having a lot of server to remove disks
before they crash the system.

Here's what I use:

:~$ cat /etc/smartd.conf
/dev/sdb -d ata -n standby \
-s (L/../../7/01|S/../.././01) -l error -l selftest -H \
-m serveradmins@example.com

/dev/sda -d ata -n standby \
-s (L/../../7/01|S/../.././01) -l error -l selftest -H \
-m serveradmins@example.com
