+ - How best to detect and display hard disk failure? 1 1

kiberovca writes: I'm planning on building an home file server, and the thing that bugs me the most is — how best to detect and then display hard disk failure? I like all of those nice lights that commercial server cases have, that shows you the state of each disk, but I haven't been able to find anything like this available for purchase, or DIY. Perhaps I'm lacking the proper term for that kind of equipment, and because of that I wasn't able to find it?
