linux default iconSpindown Publisher's description

Spindown is a daemon that spins down idle disks and so saving energy and giving the disks a longer lifetime.

Spindown is a daemon that can spindown idle disks and so saving energy and giving the disks a longer lifetime. It works by checking how many blocks are read and written from the disks. When no blocks are read or written the disk is idle. When a disk stays idle long enough spindown uses sg_start to spin the disk down. It also works with usb disks and hotswappable disks

* Configure every disk separately
* Logging trough syslog
* Easy to configure
* Spindown hot swappable disks

What's New in This Release:

. The command configuration options now expect the whole command to execute and not just only the parameters.
. It still defaults to "sg_start --stop".
. Gentoo init scripts were added.
. The FIFO is removed when shutting down the program.

System Requirements:

Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
