    I have scheduled our servers to do a command line defrag at certain times,
    is it possible to get a message like an email or file set up to say it's
    successfully finished?

  2. You could use any of the various free command line
    mailers such as blat, sendmail or mailto.

    I wonder if it is a good idea to defrag your server
    disks regularly. I suspect the benefits might be marginal
    but there is a risk of cooking the file system, judging
    by the occasional post in these newsgroup. At the
    very least you should perform some rigid tests in
    order to measure the benefit of defragging. If you don't
    then you simply get the warm feeling inside from having
    done it but nothing else.
