Detailed Description

Intel® SSD Data Center Tool (Intel® SSD DCT)

NOTE: The in-box NVMe* driver included with Windows Server 2008* and Windows Server 2012* does not allow administrative commands to be passed to NVMe drives. Therefore, the Intel® SSD Data Center Tool requires the Intel® SSD NVMe driver in order to function properly. Click here to access the Intel® SSD NVMe driver.

Purpose

The Intel® SSD Data Center Tool is a drive management tool for SSDs in the Intel® SSD Data Center Family. It provides the following key features for both SATA- and PCIe*-based Data Center Intel SSDs:

  • Detect PCIe/NVMe- and SATA-based Intel® SSD Data Center devices attached to a host system
  • Parse an Intel® SSD’s Identify Device information 
  • Parse an Intel® SSD’s SMART (Self-Monitoring and Reporting Technology) information
  • Resize the Intel® SSD's usable storage capacity by changing its maximum LBA setting
  • Update Intel® SSD firmware:

    • The tool carries a firmware payload for all supported drives
    • When drive information is displayed, the tool will indicate if a new firmware
      release is available
    • The tool does not update firmware on Engineering Sample (ES) drives

  • Calculate drive life expectancy (Endurance Analyzer feature) 
  • Enable/Disable Latency Tracking
  • Parse read and write commands Latency Tracking logs
  • Read and/or modify the SM Bus Address for PCIe NVMe family drives
  • Set the Power Governor Mode (vendor unique feature). Three Modes are supported:

    • 0: 25-watts for PCIe NVMe devices; 40-watts for PCIe NVMe x8 devices;
      Unconstrained for SATA devices.
    • 1: 20-watts for PCIe NVMe devices; 35-watts for PCIe NVMe x8 devices;
      Typical (7-watts) for SATA devices
    • 2: 10-watts for PCIe NVMe devices; 25-watts for PCIe NVMe x8 devices;
      Low (5-watts) for SATA devices.

The Intel® SSD  Data Center Tool features a Command Line Interface (CLI) for both Windows* and Linux*.

 

What’s New?

This release of the tool includes firmware updates for the Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X, DC P4510/P4610/P4511, DC P4500/P4501/D4502, and DC P4600/P4601/P4608/D4600 Series. 
The latest firmware versions are as follows:

  • Intel® Optane™ SSD DC P4800X Series; latest firmware revision E2010435.
  • Intel® SSD DC P4510/P4610/P4511 Series; latest firmware revision VDV10131/VDV10140/VCV10131.
  • Intel® SSD DC P4500/P4501/D4502 and DC P4600/P4601/P4608/D4600 Series; latest firmware revision QDV101D1.

Additionally, this release also includes the following feature changes:

  • This release added support for Intel® SSD D5-P4320 & Intel® SSD D5-P4326 Series.
  • This release added support for Intel® SSD D7-D4512 Series.
  • Support for ESXi* 6.7 added.

 

NOTES:
The Intel® SSD  Data Center Tool help screen provides additional information for each command.
