nvme device-self-test <device> [--namespace-id=<NUM> | -n <NUM>] [--self-test-code=<NUM> | -s <NUM>]
Initiates the required test based on the user input. The <device> parameter is mandatory and may be either the NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0), or a namespace block device (ex: /dev/nvme0n1). On success, the corresponding test is initiated.
-n <NUM>, --namespace-id=<NUM> Indicate the namespace in which the device self-test has to becarried out -s <NUM>, --self-test-code=<NUM> This field specifies the action taken by the device self-test command : 1h: Start a short device self-test operation 2h: Start a extended device self-test operation eh: Start a vendor specific device self-test operation fh: abort the device self-test operation
· Start a short device self-test in the namespace-id 1: # nvme device-self-test /dev/nvme0 -n 1 -s 1 · Abort the device self-test operation in the namespace-id 1: # nvme device-self-test /dev/nvme0 -n 1 -s 0xf
