Help me please - HDD Spindown - blkdevMonitor log

Post by conandrum » Thu Oct 12, 2017 2:55 pm

Hi people,

I am having trouble with my HDDs spinning down. I am attaching my blkdevMonitor_v2.log
Can you tell me what is stopping my HDDs from resting?

I reduced the idle time to 5 minutes and I can see that they spin down, but a couple of minutes later they spin right back up again.
I also disabled most services and this still happens.

Thanks in advance.

I have updated to the latest firmware and have run blkdevMonitor again.
Attached is the log file.
The behavior seems to be better than with the previous firmware, but I still noticed that it wakes up for some reason.

Can you please help me out with this? Thanks in advance.

Seems like it is now behaving OK.
Today it has been sleeping for most of the day.
So I guess the last log file I posted is normal behaviour.
Thanks dolbyman for chiming in.
