I have read earlier post on jbd2 journal writing to disk constantly.These post are several months old, but currently I have similar issues, which I cannot resolve.I have a few systems on Arch Linux and I only observe it on my laptop on a ext3 partition.Have tried "noatime, commit=60" in "/etc/fstab".Tried "Storage=volatile", "RuntimeMaxUse=25M" in "/etc
Hi, I just finished setting up a fresh 12.04 server installation to use as a file server. I installed samba but would like to us hdparm to spin down my raid array (ext4) when not in use. However, when I ran iotop, i found that jbd2 was writing to the array every 5 seconds or so preventing it from spinning down the disks.
Is there a way to prevent it from writing to the disk so often?
