     23=== Why is the attributes number and meaning different on the diks? ===
     24
     25Unlike other parts of SMART (logs, self-tests), the attributes are not
     26(and never were) part of the ATA standards. Even the general attribute
     27format (ID, VALUE, WORST, RAW) is removed from the standard since ATA-4 (1998).

     29Attribute assignment and interpretation are vendor/device specific and
     30undocumented in many cases.
