Monitoring of micro SD card

Post by IT-knorr-bremse » Tue May 14, 2019 11:22 am

Hello,
Is it possible to control/check whether there is plugged in micro SD card inside raspberry Pi while running? We have our raspberry terminals in production environment and unfortunately few cards got stolen from raspberrys. If we had this remote monitoring we could check the exact time a card was stolen and do something about that.

We have no such functionality. Under some conditions wtware uses or does not use SD after boot. Boot raspberry with your typical configuration, unplug SD and look into log: https://wtware.com/logs.html
If you find errors here, you may redirect logs to syslog server with syslog= option: https://wtware.com/docs5/config.html#syslog

Stolen SD is the reason to make network boot without SD, if you have raspberry 3b or 3b+.
