Drive detected issues are the drive health metrics collected and reported by the drive itself. This would be similar to the alerts or measurements shown by a car like its speed, fuel levels, or tire pressure. A drive has sensors to track its activities and whether those activities exceed normal bounds. Examples of drive detected issues include the number of reallocated logical sectors and the number of high-priority unload events (covered in more detail in an earlier post).

To find drive-detected issues, go to DA Portal and on the side menu, select the Slot for which you want to view the issues, and then click on the Threshold-Based Alerts tab.

Expand the Symptom Radar Chart graphic and click on the Drive-Detected Issues axis. Drive-detected issues will be highlighted on the page.
