Disks always spinning

Post by m.savazzi » Mon Apr 06, 2020 4:30 pm

I cannot understand, even when all the other computers are off the disks continue to work.
Is there a way to see which processes keep them powered on? why they are always working...

Also I've put dnsmasq/dhcp logs on an USB key as well as all my logs are there.

Any help?

check threads in here for the spindown program

then check the resulting logs for process(es) keeping the nas busy

or just keep em spinning (thats what nas do)
