Check SSD 'life left' of an Intel SSD attached to an Intel RAID Controller?


Hi there. I have an Intel S1200BTLRM motherboard and an accompanying RMS25PB040 RAID controller that uses LSI's newer dual core ROC. I have 4 Intel 520 240GB SSD's hooked up but I can't figure out how to read the SSD's "life left" attribute so i can see the level of wear the SSD has endured. The Intel SSD toolbox cannot read the drives attached to the RAID card and neither the Intel Branded Web console nor LSI's MegaRAID Storage Manager show the Life Left data from what i can tell.

I'm stumped, please help.

Btw, if anyone is curious, i'm seeing about 710 MB/s with this config according to HDTune Pro in both Read and Write in RAID 5. In RAID 6, this drops down to about 680 MB/s for Write. Not sure if that's good or bad, but I know it's going to be a big improvement over the system this is replacing.
