Smart details of Micron_1100_MTFDDAK256TBN

Description (last modified by Christian Franke)


We are running a smartctl test on the device mentioned above to determine the wear or Percent_Lifetime_Used in the goal of knowing when the device might fail.

However we are unable to get that information from the test. Is it something that is not provided by the disk manufacturer or is it not available in the smartmon database?

Below are details of the disk. I will also be attaching a file for the full test:


**/usr/sbin/smartctl -a /dev/sdb**

Already added in r4393, r4394, see ticket #783.
Enhancement is included in smartmontools release 6.6 (r4594).

Percent_Lifetime_Used in the goal of knowing when the device might fail.

Please update the drive database. Then smartctl should print the correct attribute name:

202 Percent_Lifetime_Remain 0x0030   100   100   001    Old_age   Offline      -       0

Hello Christian,

Apparently the tool update-smart-drivedb is not included in Debian 8. For some reason it is deemed insecure and therefore has been removed in the package smartmontools.

So if we are going to have that tool, does that mean compilation is the best way to go? Or is there another way to update the drive database?

Thank you for your feedback and enjoy the rest of the day.

Please address Debian specific problems to the maintainer of the Debian package.

Note that the decision to remove update-smart-drivedb (Debian Bug 804299) should possibly be reconsidered due to ticket #751.

There is no need to compile. The drive database file could be downloaded manually from the 6.6 branch and placed it in the configured location (Debian: /var/lib/smartmontools/drivedb/drivedb.h). You could also add local entries via /etc/smart_drivedb.h which is automatically loaded first if present. See -B, --drivedb option on smartctl man page.

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
