I'm starting to get error messages on my MBP 15 when I run DaVinci Resolve 17. Either there's something wrong with the DaVinci, or it's time to upgrade...

What an awesome find. Thanks for posting this. We finally have an Apple endorsed reading of the SMART data. Not that there was any doubt in my mind anyway but it is great to have ultimate confirmation.Ningj said:
While looking into an app issue and poking around in "Console > Mac Analytics Data" I stumbled on Apple sourced SMART statistics confirming data reported by other utils (most of us knew this already). Interestingly there are two percentage used stats. My drive is still on 0% and aren't sure if these report the same values for systems with significant writes (Big Sur 11.4).
If you are interested, launch Console, click on "Mac Analytics Data" and filter on com.apple.massstorage.systemcounters_v2_1
There are 8 different SSD statistics messages ...v2_1 - ...v2_8
Look for the Smart block in the statistic's summary:
It is direct confirmation from Apple developed software that the third-party SMART monitoring tools are producing accurate results. You can look at the Apple log and compare Data Units Written and Percentage Used to see that they match the third-party tools.
1% in 7 months, that’s 100% in 58 years.Mike Boreham said:
Thanks. I assume you have a 256GB M1, which makes it fit in with the other numbers emerging? :-
Mike Boreham 0% 21.7TB 512GB
Formalhaut 1% 25.9TB 512GB
The Synchroniser 2% 25.2TB 256GB
Souko 1% 15.3TB 256GB
Leons 1% 14.9TB 256GB
Recognising it is not very precise because we don't always know when it flipped to the next percentage and the percent values are only whole numbers.
I am pretty much ready to switch off the issue having established that I am likely to use 1% per 7 months.
Well Lou,Apple advertises their ports as Thunderbolt / USB 4.K-H
I saw somewhere in this thread that you are using some OWC device for TB and USB connections on your M1.
Is that TB4 now? And what about my TB2 RAID drives?
I have one TB3 RAID drive I currently use with TB3 to TB2 Apple adapters on my maxed out 2013 garbage can 8 core Mac Pro. I like it so much that I was almost ready to get an old, new stock 12 core from OWC, but with the release of even "bigger" M1 Macs on the late 2021 horizon I will sit on the sidelines. For some strange reason I am getting beach balls every 4-5 days upon start up when opening/viewing Mail and must restart it to clear out issue. Otherwise all other processing needs work smoothly with the OWC 2TB Aura Pro X and 64GB RAM. It has come to mind that my 2 D700 video cards might be on their last legs.
Yes, thanks. I am sure I will have more questions as I am just starting to look ahead. Oh, what OWC enclosure/adapter are you using?
