NAME

       nvme - the dumb pci-e storage utility

SYNOPSIS

       nvme <command> <device> [<args>]

DESCRIPTION

       NVM-Express is a fast, scalable host controller interface designed to address the needs
       for PCI Express based solid state drives.

       This nvme program is a user space utility to provide standards compliant tooling for
       NVM-Express drives. It was made specifically for Linux as it relies on the IOCTLs defined
       by the mainline kernel driver.

NVME COMMANDS

       The utility has sub-commands for all admin and io commands defined in the specification
       and for displaying controller registers. There is also an option to submit completely
       arbitrary commands. For a list of commands available, run "nvme help".
