This is your personal call. So you need to configure when you want
to get an alert yourself. Note thet the SMART status is unreliable.
I had, e.g., a Maxtor drive that had >1000 reallocated secorts and
was painfully slow still display SMART status as "passed". Personally
I monitor the reallocates sectors counter.
