    Intel RST Update Request


      Intel RST RAID is unable to pass through SMART commands/data. Can Intel modify RST to allow this?

          Hi OEFVet,
          I suggest you to review the summary of SMART events at Index tab in our RST application; it explains possible events and provides with possible solutions.

            Index Tab. Right.

            I need Intel RST to make the SMART data available on the raid volume.

              If the RST GUI'S display of S.M.A.R.T. data is insufficient and you want to extract this data for your own software to display, this is possible...


              Intel RST internally implements the CSMI protocol. In order to extract S.M.A.R.T. data from the physical drives, you need software that supports the CSMI Pass-Thru protocol. Years ago, I developed an open source SDK (for Intel QST) that included a support library for just this requirement.


              This SDK is supposed to still be available for download on the Intel site. If you cannot find it, let me know and I will provide it to you (with sample display software).




              P.S. One piece of software that includes the display of S.M.A.R.T. data from RAID arrays is AIDA64.

                Thank you Scott, helpful as always.


                I actually did NOT have success with AIDA64; now Im curious how you set that up....


                I am looking to pass the SMART data to Samsung Magician. Samsung recently made this open source, but I cannot get the Intel RST to share SMART data.


                I have run RAID in the past with mechanical drives; Windows always recognized the drives in device manager. I could update firmware and get the SMART stats for IBM deskstars, Seagate, and WD. This is my first samsung storage device.

                  Were you able to download the QST SDK? If not, let me know and I will send the pertinent piece of it to you.
