How would I track down what is touching the hard drive every 10 or so seconds? It seems to be multiple things because the delay changes if I remove xmd from /etc/ttys, or if I add/remove the noatime option in /etc/fstab.
To complicate matters, it sounds like the hard drive is seeking and then spins up when the disk is accessed. This is a laptop machine so I'd like to stop thing from happening for the power saving if nothing else. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
