Spin down command for pool drives and unassigned devices?

On the MAIN page of UNRAID, under Array Devices, where the disks are listed...


1. The dot in front of each disk device spins that one disk up or down (toggling the state).  Hover your mouse over the dot to see...

2. There are up and down arrows just below the list of devices (on the line Array of {number} devices) to spin down or spin up all devices.

smartctl  can do spin downs and support has been added for sas smartctl -s standby,now, but may fail for usb block devices i.e. Flash drives  sas support vers not currently in unraid


Unassigned and pools use sdspin aswell as array in usr/local/sbin but only does sata with hdparm unless you have dorons plugin. Which updates sdspin


I dont think there is one commamd that covers all bases you need to use cmds based on device type
