hdd standby


Post by lasdem »

I feel like something is keeping the hard disks in my nas from spinning down.
I had the disks configured to spin down after 2 hours of no activity, but i now reduced it to 30 min.
Could it be SMART? I had it on and to runa check every 30 min, but not when in standby or sleep. Now I raised the time to 60min.
Or maybe it is ZFS, is ZTF doing checks while the pool is online?

Also where can i actually see if my HDDs have spun down, apart from triying to hear the difference?
