Hey folks, I looked back through the list archives and there are surprisingly few threads with "SSD" in the subject. In my new job I've been handed over a number of things that were outstanding with the previous Sys Admin, and one of them was an SSD that was suspect. I just plugged it into a diagnostics laptop to use the Linux Smart software to check it - and it all seems fine even after running the disk test suite from the GUI. In digging for more info I discovered that the errors were actually coming from the RAID controller - and the SSD has obviously been removed from there for the time being. While I have it in my hands I'd like to do some kind of complete test / diagnostics suite on it. Preferably Linux based since that's what we have here. I found a few windows-based tools with my googling. I did stumble upon this page which looks like it has a few useful tips for using SSDs on Linux http://danweinreb.org/blog/using-solid-state-disks-on-linux Now, what about comprehensive suites? Should I just run some IO suites on it like bonnie++ or something like that, and see what SMART says in the process? I'm suspecting the RAID controller at this point ... but want to be as thorough as possible while I have it in my hands. cheers, -Alan -- “Don't eat anything you've ever seen advertised on TV” - Michael Pollan, author of "In Defense of Food"
