Google finds a lot of information for Linux. The referred Linux commands don't exist on NetBSD. Anyone?
What commands are you trying to use?
On NetBSD you can show the basic smart status values with 'atactl wd0 smart status', and you can install smartmontools from pkgsrc to add smartctl for more options.
Do you mean "Device power cycle count"? Is it increasing more often than once per power cycle? Do you have any ideas on what is triggering the increases?
