I want check and update firmware in my "SSD 970 PRO".
But in the list of ISO with firmware there is no such device:
there is "970 EVO", "970 EVO PLUS", but no "970 PRO".
Is it not supported any more?
lvfs is not supported my SSD:
Successfully downloaded new metadata: 0 local devices supported
And I have no Windows so no luck with Magician, that's why I am hoping for ISO, but it doesn't exist.
> are you experiencing any stability or performance issues with it on Linux?
Yes, smartd reports errors time to time:
Media and Data Integrity Errors: 0
Error Information Log Entries: 160
"nvme error-log" show this, so as I interpreted this, kernel issue some command, that Samsung doesn't understand. I suppose that this type of SSD is popular enough, so if this was kernel problem it would be already reported and solved, so I suppose the problem on firmware side, plus I bought it several years ago.
error_count : 160
sqid : 0
cmdid : 0xb015
status_field : 0x2002(Invalid Field in Command: A reserved coded value or an unsupported value in a defined field)
phase_tag : 0
parm_err_loc : 0xffff
lba : 0
nsid : 0
vs : 0
trtype : The transport type is not indicated or the error is not transport related.
cs : 0
Why do you think that it is smartd fault? I executed "-t short" test and this not cause error count increase.
