NAS drives always spinning
« on: January 26, 2009, 11:30:43 pm »
I have been trying to figure out why my RAID1 NAS (NAS4220-B) never spins down and I have spotted lots of hits in the samba log on the NAS. Looks like the dcerouter is hitting the NAS (samba login) every six seconds.

I've thought it might be the 5 second ping option in linux web admin but it is disabled. The windows-share is a child of the file-server device.

Anyone know how I can change this behaviour?

Not that I have your answer but even when the automatic media update is off my system keeps recognizing new media before I manually resynchronize. It is media that I copied into the directory structure. There is a post on it on the forum.

Maybe this brings you closer to the solution

I thought it might be that, although every six seconds seems excessive. I'll dig around the forums again. Thanks for the tip.

More info: The MDs also hit the samba share every six seconds. Hmm!
