SSD is always aging as it's being used. There are some formulas for evaluating its lifetime. But is there any metric for measuring the health condition of SSD? I'm trying to find out how SSD become worn out with time(under certain workload). I'm expecting something like a curve as the result. Any idea or information?

You'll want to contact your manufacturer, since there is no guarantee that any two manufacturers will implement SMART the same way.
For what it's worth, Corsair did a write endurance test on their blog. They posted the SMART indicators they used on the Forceware drives.
