comment HP Microserver Gen8 (Intel Celeron G1610T) with Ubuntu Server 14.04?
@8BitProgrammer CentOS will work, but you'll have to install it using a driver disk. Post another question here if you have issues with it.

@MichaelHampton Every once in awhile a package like psmisc would receive some back-ported changes. This probably isn't worthy?

I didn't have a Fedora system handy to check. EL6 was based on Fedora 12/13-ish, right? But you're certain that EL7 has this in place now?

Actually, this is a practical question because I'm helping a customer port their application and related scripts from Ubuntu to CentOS in my hosting environment. It's also a distribution-related quirk; to the point where people asking the same question can receive vastly different solutions, depending on OS implementation.

What type of hardware is this? Is it a branded server? If so, there are some options...

comment enable SMART for HP hard disk
@HBruijn This is correct. I often say that S.M.A.R.T. is not the final word in storage monitoring. In the HP Smart Array case, the controllers use SMART amongst a number of other methods to determine drive and array health.
