    78 ''Different vendors, different interpretation..''
    79 The raw SMART attributes (temperature, power-on lifetime, and so on) are stored in vendor-specific structures. Sometime these are strange. Hitachi disks (at least some of them) store power-on lifetime in minutes, rather than hours. IBM disks (at least some of them) have three temperatures stored in the raw structure, not just one. And so on.[[BR]]

    8079If you find strange output, or unknown attributes, please look in the below listed pages with vendor specific info.[[BR]]

     89Bruce Allen said on [https://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=Pine.LNX.4.63.0708310141280.17169%40trinity.phys.uwm.edu smartmontools-support list] (2007-08-31): ''The raw values for certain Attributes have vendor-specific meanings and are hard to interpret unless you know exactly how the vendor uses them on that specific disk model. The bit pattern might be a mix of flags, counters, and bitmasks, for example, leading to large and strange numbers. I wouldn't worry about the raw values very much. The normalized values (VALUE/WORST/THRESH) should have a sensible interpretation.''
