I have 3 SSDs on my server. How can I tell if they are SLC or MLC?


I would google their part number (see the content of /sys/class/block/sd<x>/device/model) next to SLC or MLC, as I don't think that kind of information is exposed to the operating system and thus may not be queried automatically.

  • root@host [~]# cat /sys/class/block/sdb/device/model SAMSUNG SSD 830 root@host [~]# cat /sys/class/block/sdc/device/model M4-CT256M4SSD2 root@host [~]# – user4951 Feb 3 '13 at 6:50
