Self-Monitoring, Analysis, and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.) is a technology to gather information relevant to drive status, including operating hours, unsafe power downs, and temperature. For industrial applications, ADATA has developed two sets of S.M.A.R.T. attributes.
The first attribute reports NAND Flash information. Users can easily access core SSD NAND Flash information, including bad block reports, erase count, and program/erase fail.
The second attribute is related to reliability, whereby a user can easily access drive lifetime, wear-leveling factors, and total data written – used to evaluate Total Bytes Written (TBW) and Drive Write per Day (DWPD). This information is useful in predicting overall SSD lifespan and preventing sudden data loss.
For industrial applications ADATA has developed a value-added SSD health monitoring software – A+ SSDTool with the two S.M.A.R.T. attributes above, facilitating customers to manage the SSD status in a more hassle-free way.
