Smile Any utility for ATA Commands/Features Validation?


I am looking for one utility capable of doing ATA commands/features validation. It shall be OK to validate part of them and open the interface for people to customize the code to support more.

I know this is a big topic but still would like to be ears to get some information.

Your input is appreciated very much,

Thanks in advance,

Well, it's been 7 days, so I hope my input can be of use to you.

What exactly do you mean by ATA commands and validation, specifically the validation part? If you're just looking for some utility to perform low-level disk operations, hdparm is a good one to start with. I'm not quite sure what you meant by the rest of your post.



ata, linux, utility, validation
