The SSDs in question worked fine throughout, but I admit to not having
fully propagated multiple backplanes with expanders full of SATA 3
I mentioned my experiences WRT drives that are 4k sectors with 512b
emulation behaving much better with ashift=12 prior, and I also cite
the standard  posts by gdamore regarding SAS expanders
misbehaving when drive resets are triggered.

In my scenario, the drives worked ok for some time, but failed en masse during high load, always one backplane failing, even after one or two of them was replaced. The errors I got was h/w and trn errors, mostly "No Device".
