cdck is a simple program for verifying CD/DVD quality. Even if all files on the disc are readable, some sectors having bad timing and could become unreadable in the future. The tool reads a disc sector by sector, recording all reading timings, and then tells you its verdict.

This architecture is OS distribution, hardware vendor, device, and change management system agnostic.
Sstat is a kernel module for Linux 2.6 aimed at providing basic SCSI I/O statistics. While better tools exist for monitoring disk activity, SCSI (or Fibre Channel) tapes have been neglected so far. This module compiles out-of-tree and uses Kprobes to access the information needed so it can be used with "enterprise" kernels as well (where recompilation or rebooting are not acceptable).
