-WriteAtomicityDisableNormal:

 

(For NVMe devices only) Shows the atomic write status. One of:

 

 • 0: If cleared to ‘0’, the atomic write unit for normal operation shall be honored by the controller. 

 

• 1: The host specifies that the atomic write unit for normal operation is not required and the controller shall only honor the atomic write unit for power fail operations

 

If you need further information related to this topic, we will appreciate if you can reply to the following questions:

 

- Which command (if it's from CLI tool) are you using to get SSD properties?

-We would like to know the OS that you are using.
