In order to prolong live of your SSD on Linux you could turn off writes on disk when files are being accessed. To do so enable
noatime option in
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> /dev/mapper/vgxubuntu-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro 0 1
Change last line to:
/dev/mapper/vgxubuntu-root / ext4 errors=remount-ro,noatime 0 1
If you have more mount points, you can do it as well.
To apply changes without rebooting your system type
mount for your mounting path:
$ mount -o remount /
$ mount | grep noatime
To verify your changes.
