SSD Cache 6 month lifespan?

Postby stevenb » Fri Dec 29, 2017 4:08 pm

Good morning,

Our RS2416RP+ has managed to chew through 2 Samsung EVO 850's in less than 6 months. The reported lifespan is now around 5% and 12%.

The box is used as an iscsi target for a network share serving about 50 users. The usage is pretty mild compared to our Nimble that does most of the heavy usage stuff.

Anyone having similar issues? Is that really to be expected? I would guess that the SSD's are fine and the software used to predict the lifespan is incorrect. When the replacements come I'll verify how much life is left and report what I find.
