Being able to detect faults in Hard Disk Drives (HDD) can lead to significant benefits to computer manufacturers, users and storage system providers. As a consequence, several works have focused on the development of fault detection algorithms for HDDs. Recently, promising results were achieved by methods using SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) features and anomaly detection algorithms based on Mahalanobis distance. Nevertheless, the performance of such methods can be… CONTINUE READING
