Database update: Recent Samsung 870 EVO

Reported by: Julia Tuttle Owned by: Christian Franke

Hi wonderful smartmontools folks,

Samsung seem to have changed the exposed SMART attributes in a recent hardware or firmware update for the 870 EVO.

  1. Attributes Current_Pending_Sector 197 and Offline_Uncorrectable 198 are not exposed, and smartd notes this in the system log. I'm not sure if this requires a database update.
  1. An unknown attribute 252 is exposed. I can't find any official documentation from Samsung, but based on this forum thread and this drivedb entry, I believe it is "Newly Added Bad Flash Block: The Newly Added Bad Flash Block attribute indicates the total number of bad flash blocks the drive detected since it was first initialized in manufacturing."

Per the FAQ instructions, I've attached the output of smartctl -x /dev/sda after a short offline test.

Please let me know if I can provide any further help.

  1. No, it doesn't. Missing attributes are not uncommon.
  1. Makes sense, thanks for the info.
