SCSI Device Info Box

Previous  Top  Next

If you selected a SCSI device other than an initiator (adapter), then S.M.A.R.T. Disk Monitor will return a screen that describes the following fields:

·Host Adapter Number: The adapter number recognized by the system where the SCSI device is addressed.  
·SCSI ID: The adapter's SCSI ID. Note that for best performance, this should always be set to 7, as that has the highest priority.  
·SCSI LUN: The adapter's SCSI LUN. This will typically be 0.  
·Partitions: This will show primary drive partitions, if any are defined. This map from this drive below shows that it is running the LINUX operating system.  
·Enclosure: If the device is capable of communicating with the SES enclosure, or you have selected a SAF-TE device, then this button will be selectable. It will show you everything it knows about your enclosure, including the status of all of it's elements.  
·Make/Model Box: This field combines the Vendor ID and their Product Identifier.  
·SCSI Device Type: Possible device types include CD-ROM, Disk, Tape, and Scanner.  
·Revision: Revision level of the microcode.  
·Supported Features:  
·Serial Storage Architecture: Checked if device is an (IBM) SSA disk drive.  
·Asynchronous Event Notification (AENC): Checked if device supports asynchronous event notification.  
·Terminate I/O Process (TrmIOP): Checked if the device supports the Terminate I/O process function.  
·32-bit Transfers: Checked if the device supports 32-bit wide SCSI addresses.  
·16-bit Transfers: Checked if the device supports 16-bit wide SCSI addresses.  
·8-bit Transfers: Checked if the device only supports 8-bit wide data transfers.  
·Synchronous Transfer: Checked if synchronous transfers are supported.  
·Enclosure Services Available: Checked if device contains an embedded enclosure services component.  
·Soft Reset: Checked if device supports soft resets.  
·Linked Commands: Checked if linked commands are supported. Linked commands are basically ones that are grouped together by the controller to prevent them from being broken up by another process running on that machine.  
·Command Queuing: Checked if device supports command queuing.  
·Removable Medium: Checked if device supports removable media (i.e. CD-ROM, TAPE).  
·Disk is Dual Ported Device (DualP): Fibre Channel disk drives will typically be dual ported.  
·SMART/Predictive Failure Error Reporting: Only disk drives can have this feature, and the three boxes below will be marked accordingly.  
·Capable: Checked if the drive supports S.M.A.R.T. functionality,  
·Disabled: Checked if the drive supports S.M.A.R.T., but that capability is currently disabled on the disk.  
·Enabled: Checked if S.M.A.R.T. functionality is enabled on the drive.  
·Factory Defects: The number of bad blocks that were on the disk drive when it left the factory. These are normal and should be of no concern.  
·Grown Defects: The number of blocks that the disk has marked as bad during normal operations. The list is empty at time of manufacture and these defects are automatically remapped to spare blocks on the device.  
·Additional Drive Information Window  
This window will show vendor/device specific information which is unique to for all models of disk.
