The SSD drive also reports its own personal view of lifetime remaining
and other interesting statistics using

    173 Ave_Block-Erase_Count   -O--CK   095   095   000    -    77
    202 Percent_Lifetime_Remain ----CK   095   095   001    -    5

`smartctl -x /dev/sda', for example, can gather the data.

Cheers, Ralph.
