Spinning Up disks


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

My unraid seems to be idle, I see in the syslog spin down command, but then I see read SMART entries and array awakes.

There's something in the support thread about not having it scan user shares (only disk shares) to prevent disk spinups incurring.

 

Did not help:

For some reason, file activity does not work for me. When I click on 'start', the service stays in 'Stopped' status

I don't think this is folder caching.

-- I disabled it, did not help

- re-enabled, and enabled logs -- don't see the cache task running

 

but I do see this again

disks are spinning down.. and then immediately spinning up.

 

what is emhttpd? the GUI? Why does it access SMART? Does it spin up the disk?

See if downgrading to v6.9.1 helps, there are some known issues with v6.9.2 and spin down.

 

this makes more sense to me, but I will wait then for the next version.

Should I open a bug, or there is already an open one?
