How do I check the ssd status on a Cisco ASA firewall?
show configuration | inc boot
This shows me disk0, which I am assuming is the SSD, but is there a way I can get more information about the SSD?

show disk0: all command. It will give you geometry, directory along with free space information and controller type/vendor. What else do you need?
sslvpn/example.com# show disk0: all --#-- --length-- -----date/time------ path ... 129073152 bytes total (82755584 bytes free) ******** Flash Card Geometry/Format Info ******** COMPACT FLASH CARD GEOMETRY Number of Heads: 16 Number of Cylinders 498 Sectors per Cylinder 32 Sector Size 512 Total Sectors 254976 Flash Model: SMC128AFB6E
The question is specifically about SSD, not compact flash. The 5505/5510/etc series doesn't support SSD. On the newer -X series ASA, the SSD is used for IPS software. The SSD is not user-addressable for storage from the ASA CLI, so it won't appear the same way disk0 does.
ASA version 9.1(1) was the first to support CX, which is the prior (obsolete) generation of IPS product.
ASA Version 9.2(2.4) and up support FirePower AMP, IPS, AVC, and URL filtering, which is the current product line that uses the SSD. "show module sfr" or "show inventory" will tell you if your SSD is installed properly.
