    The IBM Flash Adapter 90 (PCIe2 0.9 TB) feature #ES09 is the only SSD supported by AIX which is not supported by filemon. This feature code was withdrawn from marketing several years back and there are no plans to update filemon support for this feature. All SAS and NVMe SSD supported by AIX have filemon support.
