I've been having this problem for quite a long time now.
smartd writes every tempereture change of disks to my logs. Even when I have told it not.
/etc/smartd.conf:
DEFAULT -d removable -a -S on -n sleep,2 -W 10

/dev/disk/by-path/ata1-host0-target0:0:0-0:0:0:0
/dev/disk/by-path/ata2-host1-target1:0:0-1:0:0:0
/dev/disk/by-path/ata3-host2-target2:0:0-2:0:0:0
/dev/disk/by-path/ata4-host3-target3:0:0-3:0:0:0
/dev/disk/by-path/ata5-host4-target4:0:0-4:0:0:0
/dev/disk/by-path/ata6-host5-target5:0:0-5:0:0:0
All the disks here are in hostswap cage, so that's why the -d removable.
I've tried with -W 5,50,60 earlier, but it has no effect.
Any tips?

The smartd manpage has one example for exactly this (you want -I 194 instead of -W <anything>):
Quote:
Code:
# The following line enables monitoring of the
# ATA Error Log and the Self-Test Error Log.
# It also tracks changes in both Prefailure
# and Usage Attributes, apart from Attributes
# 9, 194, and 231, and shows  continued lines:
#
/dev/sdd -l error \
    -l selftest \
    -t \         # Attributes not tracked:
    -I 194 \     # temperature
    -I 231 \     # also temperature
    -I 9         # power-on hours

That would still result in same kind of spamming. Since I cannot set any temperature ranges by using -I 194. :(

Tested with -I 194 and without any temperature monitoring, but I still get log spamming. :|

Maybe I'd be better to have some cron job as monitoring the temparature changes...
I've already given scheduled tests over to cron, but I keep smartd running because It can effectively log the changes.

EDIT: I might be wrong... Looks like log spamming has now stopped. But now nothing is logging any temperature changes. :|
I'll continue trying out to solve this...
My goal is to have smartd report over 5°C temperature changes and over 50°C would be logged more often and 60°C considered critical. (I know those values are quite high, but will do while I'm trying to solve this.)
Those values would translate to -W 5,50,60.
