You need smartmontools installed - then try something like this:

smartctl -a <disk device>

Thank you. Both devices in the array passed:

=== START OF READ SMART DATA SECTION ===
SMART overall-health self-assessment test result: PASSED

Ok, but you need to trigger the actual tests. First the short test, then the long one. The explanation is in the man page. You trigger it, then wait till it finishes. You can continue using the computer during the test.

Trigger only one side of the array each time - IMO.
