I'm looking for a second hand datacenter ssd
and am not clear on some SMART attributes
for some of the ssd's I've asked
for. Attached is one example
and below that is a list of attributes that are not clear.
(E8h)Available reserved space - Data = 0 but threshold is 10 ?
(ABh)Program fail count - Data = 0 ?
(ACh)Erase Fail Count - Data = 0?
(BEh)Case Temperature = 82 - is this too high ?
(B8h)End-to-End Error Detection Count - 90 not 100 ?
(E1h)Host Writes - 0 ?
(E2h)Timed Workload Media Wear = 0 ?
(E3h)Timed Workload Host Read/Write Ratio - =99 - mostly read only ?
(E9h)Media Wearout Indicator = 0 but should be reducing from 100 to min 1?
(F1h)Total LBAs Written = 0 - is this 0 writes ?
(F2h)Total LBAs Read = 405637 - how is it that F1h = 0 for so many

Hi Junior M.,
Thanks for the info. That is the document (the SATA one) that I referred to when checking
what was in the SMART figures for the respective SSD, but I found the values of
some of the attributes (listed) to be strange, at least to my understanding. Could you
please comment on these attributes/values ?
Thanks for the reply.
We recommend you to get the SMART details form our official tools such as the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27497/Intel-SSD-Data-Center-Tool%3Fproduct%3D87278 Intel® SSD Data Center Tool or the https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/27527/Intel-Solid-State-Drive-Toolbox%3Fv%3Dt Intel® Solid State Drive Toolbox because the values you are getting may not be accurate and we can not confirm if they are the same since you are using a different tool.
Once you get the SMART details please let us know which attributes you are concerned about.
We look forward to hearing back from you.
