I have downloaded and built 6.0 smartool, and run it on two different Linux R720 and R710 testing the very same SSD type (Intel 520 Series.) In both cases I got the same Workld_Media_Wear_Indic value - 65535.
I run smartctl -t vendor,0x40 on these devices in hope that it fixes the issue (I know - it actually sets the counter to 65535,) but after running a write test for some time, the value still is the same (65535)
Any idea what is going on? Is there something I am missing? Note that I have "SMART support is: Enabled" (smartctl -a)
Here is the line orignal line (used xargs echo to remove extra spaces:)
~# ./smartctl -A --device=sat+megaraid,3 /dev/sg2 | grep Workld_Media_Wear_Indic | xargs echo 226 Workld_Media_Wear_Indic 0x0032 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 65535
