We are running an SSD array in a SAN, and the performance is great. But we need to monitor the write endurance SMART attributes so that we can determine when the drives are close to wearing out. We tested these drives and confirmed that we could get that data, but didn't try it in the SAN. Now we have discovered that our SAN (a Dell PowerVault) doesn't have any way to query SMART data. All it does is query a few attributes itself and generate a report. That report doesn't contain the attributes we need.
Is there any way to access our drives' SMART data without taking them out of the array and putting them in another machine to read the data?
