Daemon that can spin idle disks down
Spindown is a daemon that can spin idle disks down and thus save energy and
improve disk lifetime. It periodically checks for read or written blocks. When
no blocks are read or written the disk is idle. When a disk stays idle long
enough, spindown uses custom command like sg_start or hdparm to spin it down.
It also works with USB disks and hot-swappable disks because it doesn't watch
the device name (hda, sdb, ...), but the device ID. This means that it doesn't
matter if the disk is swapped while the daemon is running.
To make an installation type:
# make install
Before you can run it you'll need to copy the spindown.conf.example file to
/etc/spindown.conf and adapt it to your needs. You can run the deamon like this:
# /etc/init.d/spindown start
You can also get the status as following:
# /etc/init.d/spindown status
If you would like to work on the code you can run the daemon from the source
