I'm trying to monitor hard drive's smart status. I've tried smartctl tools and HP's own hpacucli to generate ADU report. However, neither of them are useful. smartctl does not show values like Power On Hours or Hard drive temperature. ADU report shows them empty.
What's the right way to monitor hard drives with HP raid controller?
Smartctl: smartctl -a -d cciss,0 /dev/sg0

You're not supposed to use
smartctl and the like directly with these controllers. The HP Smart Array controllers use a variety of techniques to determine drive and system health. S.M.A.R.T. is one of them, but not the ultimate determination. It makes to sense to take advantage of the purpose-built tools available.
So in your case, configure your hp-snmp-agents to send an email when there's an issue. On Linux, emails default to the root user and a message in the syslog, but configuring an alert destination can be handled in
As for the
hpacucli utility, running
hpacucli ctrl all show config detail provides most of the relevant array health information.
for me working like this
smartctl -d cciss,0 -a /dev/cciss/c0d0 Device supports SMART and is Enabled Temperature Warning Enabled SMART Health Status: OK Current Drive Temperature: 31 C Drive Trip Temperature: 68 C Elements in grown defect list: 0 Vendor (Seagate) cache information Blocks sent to initiator = 3203138637 Blocks received from initiator = 3715997197 Blocks read from cache and sent to initiator = 484569203 Number of read and write commands whose size <= segment size = 1111593814 Number of read and write commands whose size > segment size = 0 Vendor (Seagate/Hitachi) factory information number of hours powered up = 14706.28 number of minutes until next internal SMART test = 33
