Hi Brendan,

We changed the format expected for 'filename' in the fio configuration file a
few months back so we can support NVMe-oF. You are using the old format, but you
must have pulled updated code. See:


In your config file, change



filename='trtype=PCIe traddr=0000.04.00.0 ns=1'

That should fix it up.
