The RAID controller watches the SMART status of the drives for you.

You should watch the status of the RAID controller. It should give
a warning if a drive is about to fail or has failed.

I use array-info to get the status:

# /usr/local/bin/array-info -d /dev/cciss/c0d0
Compaq Smart Array 5312
         Firmware revision : 2.58
         Rom revision      : 2.58
         1  logical drive configured.

         Logical drive  0 :
           Fault tolerance : RAID 5
           Size            : 957.10 GiB (2007181360 blocks of 512 bytes)
           Status          : Logical drive is ok
