    Status LEDs on P3520 (HHHL AIC)

    jfrjimenez

      There are three status LEDs on the P3520 near the PCIe bracket. What do the LEDs indicate?

       

      On one installation, I see the top and middle LEDs as green. On another installation in a different server, the top LED is green, and the middle LED is amber.

       

      There is an installation guide for the P3500/P3600/P3700 series, but those have four status LEDs, so these would be different.

          Hello jfrjimenez,

          We do not currently have the Add-in Card LED decoder information for the P3520 Series on hand but have already placed a request on your behalf. 

          We will update you as soon as we receive a response.

          Best regards,

            Hello jfrjimenez,

            This is the information on the LEDs for your SSD.

            LED D103 (Top) - Shows green when there's IO activity.
            LED D102 (Middle) - Shows green when PCIe* link is good. Amber when the link is sub-optimal (running at Gen 1 or Gen 2, or less than 4 lanes).
            LED D101 (Bottom) - Health indicator. Off is good, amber indicates fail status.

            The Intel® SSD DC P3520 Series is a PCIe* NVMe* 3.0 x4. While the drive is backward compatible with PCIe* 2.0 and 1.0, the drive will perform at half or quarter speeds, respectively.

            Our recommendation, in this case, will be to make sure the drive in question has been installed into a slot that meets these requirements. It may also be good to check and make sure the slot doesn't share lanes with another device.

            Best regards,
            Carlos A.

              Perfect! Thanks for the answer. I'm surprised I couldn't find a publicly-facing technical document with this information.
