Enable SMART in bhyve VM.

Recommended Posts

Since FreeBSD's bhyve hypervisor didn't provide SMART for RDM, There a patch for this.

You can specify SMART Info of Host's disk to virtual AHCI disk. that will make DSM recognize it.

 

 

You can get the patch here: https://reviews.freebsd.org/D25975

 

Without patch and specify passthrough SMART device, DSM cannot tell SMART.

After Patch and sepecify a SATA SSD as the passthrough device. here is the SMART result.

Since my M2 SSD is not in SMART database, the attribute are not showing correctly.

interesting, might be a option for linux kvm but it seems the most used esxi will not be able to make use of this as long as vmware does not adapt it
