Re: smartctl kills performance

Hello!
Can't reply directly into the thread like with Google Groups, but
anyway. I'm writing in reply to
http://sourceforge.net/p/smartmontools/mailman/message/29431706/ about
offline test kills the performace.

On the new server on Hetzner, strange performance degradation was
detected. During several days, degrade started at 4:15 AM, reboot
helped.

The server is equipped with disks:
root <at> phi1:~# for i in  /dev/sd?;do smartctl -i $i;done|grep Model
Device Model:     HGST HUS726060ALE610
Device Model:     HGST HUS726060ALE610
Device Model:     HGST HUS726060ALE610
Device Model:     HGST HUS726060ALE610

As revealed, when regular offline scan fires up (at 4:15 AM), disk
performance is slow as turtle.

Feb  6 04:15:01 phi1 smartd[2232]: Device: /dev/sdb [SAT], starting
scheduled Long Self-Test.
Feb  6 04:15:01 phi1 smartd[2232]: Device: /dev/sdc [SAT], starting
scheduled Long Self-Test.

I can see large awaits in iostat, collectd showed disk io time up to
75 seconds! ( http://gyazo.coolcold.org/upload/fe129abcc401bd61496273c32d4c.png
)

Stopping offline test with "-x" restores the performance.

Unknown attribute 169 failing

Hello,


I have a Model: TOSHIBA THNSNF256GMCS (FSTAN103) which is a 256GB SSD using mSATA which came with my toshiba laptop.


The only test that is failing is attribute 169 which does not have a description and I could not find any information about this on fourms, faqs or your mailing achieve. It shows that the drive is failing soon.


Additional information: The drive contains windows which is corrupted which drove me to use a linux boot with smartclt to check its health. I could still mount the drive as read-only in linux and save my files but cannot boot or repair the drive.


Help would be appreciated, 

Thanks very much.

Re: Frequent file system errors on USB drive


Hi,
I received this answer but cannot find it in the support mailing list.
I used a new case for the external HDD and for a while it seemed to 
solve the problem - until yesterday the file system was corrupted again. 
The entry in the windows event log occurred while again a backup with 
many small files was running. Chkdsk could repair the file system. There 
were files from previous backups that have been affected also.
Additionally an image backup that caused no problems so far did not pass 
the test.
I used the HDD via a USB hub for many years without a problem. With the 
old case the file system errors happened no matter whether I connected 
the HDD via the hub or directly with the computer (different USB 
sockets). So I used the HDD with the new case via the hub again.
Any other help for this strange problem with my external HDD?

smart command hangs SATA bus

I have this truely delightful piece of Seagate firmware junk: When I
query this disk for its health information, the SCSI smart commands
fail. There has been an increasing number of reallocated and pending
sectors. I can copy files off correctly, so I doubt it's a hardware
problem with the SATA interface (either host, cable, disk).

This turns into a major problem on modern Linux systems where absolutely
everything works on systemd or related. Here udisksd bangs in smart
commands twice every 10 minutes, interrupting any data rescue. Renaming 
libatasmart.so.4 (which udisksd is linked with) and stopping
udisks2.service fixes that - for 2 seconds. Logging in on a KDE desktop
takes 10 minutes, with about 20 attempts to crank up udisks2.service and
related timeouts - and main dsktop functionality doesn't even depend on
it. I doubt other desktops are much better. Not so smart design...

Unfortunately, smartctl can't retrieve any much useful info from the
disk any more - both -a and -H produce 2 bus lockups each. That means I
can't get either the overall smart status (passed/failed) or the
attribute values (like reallocate count) any longer.

It looks like as soon as there is a serious problem wit bad sectors,
Seagate thinks it's really smart to stop communicating properly over the
SATA bus... I'd use a different adjective myself.

Is there a trick, to
 * Stop the whole system from locking up via udisksd
 * Stop smartctl (and probably smartd) from locking the bus, even if not
 all info can be retrieved?

Details below (also attached, might work better for long lines).

Thanks,

Volker

remove smartd.log (view) shortcuts from Win32 start menu

Dear smartmontools-support :

When I use notepad.exe, on text files not associated with smartmontools,
unwanted and incorrect shortcuts (example, smartd.log (view)) appear on
the (WinXP) start menu.  All efforts to stop this have been unsuccessful.

Otherwise smartctl v6.4 is good and useful.

Can you please advise me?

[Smartmontools-database] Add support for INNODISK 2.5” SATA SSD 3ME

See attached SMARTCTL report for the SDD in object.
The product is described here:
http://www.innodisk.com/Product/ProductDetail.aspx?SUQwMT0wMDEmSUQwMj0zMzk2Yjk5Yi00ZTM1LTRlNjctYWZjYS0yNGFiMWYzY2M2MzcmSUQwMz0mSUQ9ODc5NDZkMjEtYTE2OS00YTBhLThjZjgtMzdiZDZlN2M0MjJmJmRmbF9JRD0wMDE%3D

Some smart attributes are unknown for SMARTCTL. Using the SMART utilities "iSmart" (developed by
Jactron, seems an Innodisk parner company) it is possible to obtain an export with the smart attributes
named, see below:
Model	2.5" SATA SSD 3ME                       	119.24 GB

EB	Erase Block	0	0200640000000000000000
EC	Unstable Power Count	0	0200646400000000000000

>From a quick analysys and comparison with the SMARTCTL report it seems to me that attributes 16#AD (173
dec) contains a couple of parameter, one in the lower word the other in the upper word.
Something similar, probably, also for 16#EB attribute.

Jactron ISMART is available here:

Please add to SMARTMONTOOLS database.

Have a nice day,

Does smartctl use non-queued commands

Hi, I’m not developer by nature but I’m trying to use smartctl against some Intel S3700 SSD drives behind a Dell PERC8 controller and was recently asked the question of whether smartctl uses queued or non-queued commands to query disks.  The concern was a system under very heavy write load and we want to monitor the disk health during production, if we were to run smartctl commands against the disk, would it use a non-queued command and possible abort the queue causing possible data loss or corruption?

 

I’ve been looking over the FAQs for smartmontools and reading through what I can find on Github but I’m not familiar enough with the tools to have a solid confirmation.  Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

Frequent file system errors on USB drive

Hi,
I use a Samsung HD400LD USB drive for backups on Windows 7 Professional 
64 bit SP1. For some time now while running mirror backups I rather 
frequently have file system errors on that backup drive. Sometimes they 
can be repaired using chkdsk, sometimes chkdsk fails and I have to 
format the drive (did both, fast and full formatting). I am still using 
the same backup software (Backup4all), also tried another one (Personal 
Backup), same problem. It seems like the error occurs more on larger 
backups with very many files. But much larger backups with just one file 
(zipped system backup, Macrium Reflect) work without any problem. All 
backups have several GB of size.
There are no SMART errors, long self test passes without any problems. 
Memory test also without any errors.
What may cause this problem?

Areca ARC-1882ix-24

I read that smartmontools supports Areca RAID Cards, however I am running in JBOD and when I run smartctl on the drive, it doesn't return all the information as it should. This makes me wonder if the smartmontools health monitor is accurate.

Are regular smart tests safe? And smart logs capacity, location

Hi!

I'm curious about correlation between regular SMART tests (long and
short) and disk health. When smart tests are running HDD emits strange
sounds, and I do not know what is going on inside HDD, maybe only vendor
does. Does it reduce hdd health? Do you have such statistics?

My disks pass 4 short and 1 long test per month, so smart logs are
getting bigger with 5 strings every month. Are this logs stored on hdd,
or somewhere on my PC? If they are stored on disk, how much regular disk
can store (about 100, about 1000?)?

Kind regards,
Yan
