NAME

       nvme-device-self-test - Perform the necessary tests to observe the performance and the
       parameters

SYNOPSIS

       nvme device-self-test <device> [--namespace-id=<NUM> | -n <NUM>]
                               [--self-test-code=<NUM> | -s <NUM>]

DESCRIPTION

       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.

OPTIONS

       -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

EXAMPLES

       ·   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
