S4500 smart recommended tresholds

Hello,

Is there any documentation regarding Intel SSD smart value recommended thresholds to monitor?

I'm am particularly interested in DC S4500's as support article mentions that for example "Pending Sector Count" will be much higher than on older gens

and will change often and can be ignored to some level.

Do I even need to have Nagios NRPE smart_check scripts poke these values on S4500's and if I need then what threshold should be set there?

support article ref:

Thanks for reply.

I hadn't yet looked into viewing smart via DCT linux version. It looks that this will be much better option to check drive health with than standard smartmontools - smartctl.

As I can just run periodical selftests via cron and check "DeviceStatus" value and maybe separate attribute "Action" values. That way I don't have to do any interpretation as I can just

check the statuses that DCT outputs.

Now just to create NRPE script for that.
