I tried to use smartctl to get info about the total bytes written to my SSD (started using it yesterday). It currently shows 18 Blocks which seems much to small for me (currently used space is ~9GB).

Is my interpretation of the "raw value" (number of 512B blocks) wrong?

EDIT: Now (a day later) the value is 30 ... so maybe it is not measured in blocks but in GB?

Output:

smartctl 6.4 2015-06-04 r4109 [x86_64-linux-4.2.5-1-ARCH] (local build)
