    Re: AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD - TRIM not working

    Are you running this command from within a virtual machine?

    Re: AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD - TRIM not working

    FYI,
    Phoronix benchmarked a PCIe 4.0 SSD on Ubuntu, so the NVMe driver does work - at least with the tested drive.

    Note: The testing used the 5.2 kernel, so that might be what's needed.

    Re: AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD - TRIM not working

    Ongoing saga for fstrim. I Turned on kernel tracing for the nvme as per instructions from someone willing to help out. Unfortunately, the person helping doesn't know enough about error to help further, but are trying to enlist others to help.

    Could you collect logs via the following steps?

    Code:
    Suppose your nvme disk name is /dev/nvme0n1:
    
    1) queue limits log:
    
        #(cd /sys/block/nvme0n1/queue && find . -type f -exec grep -aH . {} \;)
    
    
    2) NVMe IO trace
    
    - enable nvme IO trace before running fstrim:
    
        #echo 1  > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/nvme_setup_cmd/enable
        #echo 1  > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/nvme_complete_rq/enable
    
    - run fstrim
    
    - after the fstrim failure is triggered, disable the nvme io trace & post the log:
    
        #echo 0  > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/nvme_setup_cmd/enable
        #echo 0  > /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/events/nvme_complete_rq/enable
    
        #cp    /sys/kernel/debug/tracing/trace /root/nvme_io_trace.log


    thanks,

    Hello Ming

    Thank you for the quick reply See attached
    From the IO trace, discard command(nvme_cmd_dsm) is failed:

    From the IO trace, discard command(nvme_cmd_dsm) is failed:

    kworker/15:1H-462 [015] .... 91814.342452: nvme_setup_cmd: nvme0: disk=nvme0n1, qid=7, cmdid=552, nsid=1, flags=0x0, meta=0x0, cmd=(nvme_cmd_dsm nr=0, attributes=4)
    <idle>-0 [013] d.h. 91814.342708: nvme_complete_rq: nvme0: disk=nvme0n1, qid=7, cmdid=552, res=0, retries=0, flags=0x0, status=8198

    And the returned error code is 0x8198, I am not sure how to parse the
    'Command Specific Status Values' of 0x98, maybe Christoph, Keith or our other
    NVMe guys can help to understand the failure.


    Thanks,
    Ming

    Negative.. Only Ubuntu is on the drive.

    I would like to add your information to the people trying to help, but before I do I have some questions.

    Are you saying you have tried fstrim on this PCIe 4.0 SSD, and is not working?

    Thanks,

    David

    Re: AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD - TRIM not working

    Phoronix didn't test trim - it's just performance benchmarking. My suggestion in the note is that a newer kernel is often needed to support all features of newest hardware. For that Corsair drive and yours, the vendor information I saw is that the drive supports trim. But maybe you need the latest kernel to make trim work.

    I've tried 3 different kernels including 5.2 rc7.

    Well, I guess you've eliminated that cause. Two obvious possibilities come to mind - the fstrim utility needs updating to handle PCIe 4.0 drives, or it's the drive itself.

    That's the 10k question at this point. I've opened a case with Gigabyte asking if there are any firmware updates, but will take 3-5 days to get back with me. I was hoping to see more people with PCIe 4.0 drives with issues so we could press this issue more, but appears this is bleeding edge for Ubuntu and the trim utility. I think another issue is I went off the beaten path by going with a Gigabyte SSD which is actually made by Phision, so this may be a while before it gets enough recognition to be fixed.

    Re: AORUS NVMe Gen4 SSD - TRIM not working

    Are you using an m.2 drive with adapter? If you have an unused PCIe 3 slot, you could move the adapter and drive to that and see if trim works with drive operating at PCIe 3 speed. These devices are supposed to be backward compatible.
