• 6.9.0 RC2 - Array Disks spin up unnecessarily

    • Closed Minor

    Generally speaking disks spin up / down fine for me in RC2, but there is one usecase where I have noticed unnecessary spin ups.


    Steps to reproduce:

    1. create a share which is set to "cache only"

    2. wait for unraid to spin down all disks

    3. access that "cache only" share (in my case from a Windows 10 PC where it is mapped as a network drive)

    4. copy a file to that "cache only" share (while all other array disks are spun down!)


    Expected behaviour: file gets copied to the cache drive, all array disks stay spun down

    Result: (some) disks spin up, log shows "read smart" entries for those array disks

    Hi cholzer,


    i can not reproduce your case but what i noticed on my system with 6.9.0 RC2 is that my disks are not spinning down any more. How did you set your spin down? For every disk or in the disk settings for all?


    Thanks Marzel

    I just have the spindown delay set to 30minutes. That works fine for me using an LSI SAS 2008 in IT-Mode

    Changed Status to Closed

    I am nolonger able to reproduce the issue since I replaced my potentially failing LSI 3008 with an LSI 2008.
