We can see that disk4 took 61 seconds, but disk3 took only 6.6 seconds. If they are both Crucial M.2 then I'll need to add a warning against their use in Monterey. Which Crucial M.2 drives are you using (the model name)?

Below are the 3 M.2 that I have. The 2TB is the one for Monterey, the 1TB is Windows 11 and the Kingston 500gig is Big Sur now.

I noticed that the actual M.2 is disk 2 but the container disk is disk 4, maybe that is the issue

The best way to sort this out is as follows (in Terminal):
Bash:
log show --last boot | grep "trims took"
(then press CTRL-C after 5 or so seconds)

diskutil list
Then simply post the output.

Is there a way to fix or should I just use another M.2?
I did not expect Crucial NVMe SSDs to experience this problem. Keep using it for now while we see if anyone else is having the same problem with this drive.

That P2 NVMe uses the Phison E13T controller which some believe to have the same TRIM issues that the Samsung NVMe drives have when formatted APFS. The Sabrent Rocket Q4 uses a similar Phison E controller.

The Crucial P1 and P5 drives use completely different controllers. Silicon Motion and Micron.

The Crucial drives with a Micron controller will be your best bet for a macOS boot drive. I've used Micron/Crucial SSDs (MLC NAND) for nearly 10 years now with zero problems.

Will add Crucial P2 NVMe SSD to the avoidance list for Monterey.
