    Hi,

    Recently we setup new hosting server with SSD and noticed that its Wear_Leveling_Count is increasing rapidly. within 25 days Wear_Leveling_Count increased from 0 to 10

    Its Samsung 1TB 850 PRO model, asked Datacenter guy about this and he told me that
    smartctl tool is not very accurate when checking SSD health, it basically for HDD.

    See attached screenshot for complete output of -
    smartctl -A /dev/sda

    Can experts here tell me whats the correct way to judge the SSD health.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    You may receive more user-feedback to this type of hardware question on a website such as StackOverflow. The topics on this forum generally relate to the cPanel/WHM software itself. Here's an example of one such URL:
