On the System/Shutdown page, there are are two startup options, one for 'volume scan' and one for 'check/fix quotas'.
I propose a suite of non-destructive drive/cabling checking tests as a 3rd option. In addition, an option to automatically send-all-logs when finished with that step (but before other system startup tasks that might be slowed or fail to allow the box to become operative) so that folks who are experiencing slow/failed-boot issues aren't delayed by hours when trying to get the logs to you.
And perhaps a non-web way to cause the test to execute. If appropriate, perhaps automatically on the 5-second reset on the back, a longer 10-second reset (perhaps to close to the 30-second destructive reset?) or by holding the front power button down when starting the box?
The scans would perform various checks to debug drive/cabling problems, record known drive compatibility issues, etc., the specifics are probably more in your area of expertise. If there's already a known area of unused blocks, as I suspect you reserve, you could even do read/write tests there as well and, perhaps as a last step, read tests on blocks that were giving errors in previous attempts before the current reboot.
I suspect it will come in handy in Infrant's debugging and customer satisfaction efforts.
[Edit: and perhaps a similar feature for the USB-attached drives as well, if appropriate, though I suspect this would be an even later add-on.]
