    Idea [I] NEXIS | SSD Health monitoring utility - Get it now.

    NEXIS | SSD Health monitoring utility

    In the last few days, Avid has provided a SSD Health monitoring utility that should be run DAILY by all customers with Avid NEXIS 7.3 to 2018.3. 

    As previously notified Avid NEXIS | FS 7.3 – 2018.3 does not correctly monitor the status of the metadata SSDs in Avid NEXIS Engines and the SDA. 

    Our recommendation is to upgrade to Avid NEXIS 2018.4 or higher as soon as possible. All systems should be monitored daily until upgraded. 

    The new utility uses a simple configuration file to teach the utility the address of all controllers. The utility then scans each controller and reports the status of all SSDs in a simple log file, as;

    PASS: All good, check again tomorrow

    Warning: Typically login issues

    FAIL: Contact Avid Customer Care immediately (do not replace drives)

    The utility is available for Windows and Mac and is available NOW in all NEXIS customers’ Avid Master Account (MyAvid).

    Please spread the word, it is critically important that any system using Avid NEXIS v7.3 to 2018.3 run this utility every day.

    questions, let me know.
