Hard Disk Temperature -hddtemp

Recently I came across hddtemp a very useful tool to check hard disk temperature. It is available in debian repository. It uses SMART  capability of the hard disk to get temperature information. Here is the output from my system

# hddtemp /dev/sda
/dev/sda: WDC WD5000AADS-00S9B0: 38°C

It has daemon mode also for continuous monitoring.
