It's hard to find what is spinning up my disk.

Recommended Posts


I have a problem, randomly, my hard drive spin up. It can be 2x per day or 5 times on 2 hours. This is what I setup :


- all shares are on cache (Yes / Prefer)

- Plex CRON only the night

- I use plugin called File Activty and Open Files

- I installed SSD cache directory but no better results.


Right now, nothing are opened in File Activy, in Open Files, I don't see any reference to disk1. When I tried ti manualy spin down the disk, it spin up immediately :


Sep 21 22:15:23 Sparta emhttpd: spinning down /dev/sdd
Sep 21 22:15:39 Sparta emhttpd: read SMART /dev/sdd
Sep 21 22:17:03 Sparta emhttpd: spinning down /dev/sdd
Sep 21 22:17:11 Sparta emhttpd: read SMART /dev/sdd


What can I do ?

Spinning disk coincides with these files and the time.


These are files related to VMs, except that they are off !

I saw these files is supposed to be on cache and not on disk1. I will change that.
