Is there a way of monitoring the number of writes done to a drive?

  • pfSense / FreeBSD newbie here! :-)

    I've just installed pfSense on an 8 GB compact flash card and so far all is going well! :-D

    I installed it to a standard x86 pc with keyboard / screen, and so to avoid needing a nullmodem cable I installed a modified version of a mirror somewhere that had keyboard / screen support enabled.

    The only thing is that I want to check to see how frequently writes are being made to the compact flash card - is there any way of doing this?
