Disabled. You need an application in the OS to continously monitor SMART values to be of any use.
If you want, you can use the Intel Solid State Drive Toolbox to read your SMART values from your drive.
Also, note that SMART helps to warn impending drive failure around 64% of the time: labs.google.com/papers/disk_failures.pdf
