nvme sanitize-log <device> [--output-format=<fmt> | -o <fmt>] [--human-readable | -H] [--raw-binary | -b]
Retrieves the NVMe Sanitize log page from an NVMe device and provides the status of sanitize command.
The <device> parameter is mandatory NVMe character device (ex: /dev/nvme0).
Expected status and description :-
|0x0000||NVM subsystem has never been sanitized.|
|0x0001||The most recent sanitize operation completed successfully.|
|0x0002||A sanitize operation is currently in progress.|
|0x0003||The most recent sanitize operation failed.|
|0x0100||Global Data Erased bit If set to 1 then non-volatile storage in the NVM subsystem has not been written to: a) since being manufactured and the NVM subsystem has never been sanitized; or b) since the most recent successful sanitize operation. If cleared to 0, then non-volatile storage in the NVM subsystem has been written to: a) since being manufactured and the NVM subsystem has never been sanitized; or b) since the most recent successful sanitize operation of the NVM subsystem.|
Sanitize Progress - percentage complete
On success it returns 0, error code otherwise.
- -o <format>, --output-format=<format>
Set the reporting format to normal, json, or binary. Only one output format can be used at a time.
- -H, --human-readable
This option will parse and format many of the bit fields into human-readable formats.
- -b, --raw-binary
Print the raw buffer to stdout. Structure is not parsed by program. This overrides the vendor specific and human readable options.
