    23 === Why is the attributes number and meaning different on the diks? ===
    24 
    25 Unlike other parts of SMART (logs, self-tests), the attributes are not
    26 (and never were) part of the ATA standards. Even the general attribute
    27 format (ID, VALUE, WORST, RAW) is removed from the standard since ATA-4 (1998).
    28 
    29 Attribute assignment and interpretation are vendor/device specific and
    30 undocumented in many cases.

     58
     59If no documentation is available, the RAW value of attribute 1 is typically useless.
     60The 48-bit field might encode several values, try {{{-v 1,hex48}}} to check.
