You seem to have got lucky your nas's have something accessing the drive
far more often than mine
causing your drive to park far less

ofc Its still crazy high at 167k
its no where near what mine was

The firmware is a mess for sure
one day i may have a go at cleaning it up

There's so many old files from
christmas past that are no longer used
its a joke

every time they replace something they just cut/paste
and leave the old stuff there

Test scripts included with apps and such that are for examples

the firmware could be half the size with ease
if it was cleaned up

and im not going to even go into the error log of apps

with all the problems you certainly have when building
your firmware images, should know, that Buffalo hired some students
(and that are NOT computer science students, of course) to quality check
their software

Seagate are doing this also now

Device Model: ST3000DM001-9YN166
Firmware Version: CC82

They are parking the heads all of the time in a very loud fashon

sda 193 Load_Cycle_Count 0x0032 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 24
sdb 193 Load_Cycle_Count 0x0032 100 100 000 Old_age Always - 34

That was with less than an hour's use
There's no way to perm disable it on the seagates though (that i have found yet)

A temp way to disable is

hdparm /dev/sda -B 255
hdparm /dev/sdb -B 255
hdparm /dev/sdc -B 255
hdparm /dev/sdd -B 255


so i have had to add it into the boot process

I will be adding it to mod.sh on 1.64 mod1a onwards

try idle3-tools

http://forum.nas-hilfe.de/festplatten-und-ssd-laufwerke/western-digital-in-einer-ls-xhl-load-cycle-count-t1435.html

i have no success with Seagate

Code:
root@DUO:/tmp/idle3-tools-0.9.1# ./idle3ctl -g /dev/sda
The drive /dev/sda does not seem to be a Western Digital Drive but a ST3000DM001-9YN166           
Use the --force option if you know what you're doing
root@DUO:/tmp/idle3-tools-0.9.1# ./idle3ctl -g --force /dev/sda
sg16(VSC_SENDKEY) failed: Invalid exchange
root@DUO:/tmp/idle3-tools-0.9.1#

WD's are still coming from buffalo with 8 second parking
I have just unboxed a brand new vl for a family member with a december 2012 build date
it had 29 parks before i got around to disabling it (around 20 mins)


=== START OF INFORMATION SECTION ===
Device Model: WDC WD20EARX-00PASB0
Firmware Version: 51.0AB51


root@Nas3:/mnt/disk1/share# ./idle3ctl /dev/sda
Idle3 timer set to 80 (0x50)

root@Nas3:/mnt/disk1/share# ./idle3ctl -g103 /dev/sda
Idle3 timer set to 8.0s (0x50)

root@Nas3:/mnt/disk1/share# ./idle3ctl -s255 /dev/sda
Idle3 timer set to 255 (0xff)
Please power cycle your drive off and on for the new setting to be taken into account. A reboot will not be enough!

root@Nas3:/mnt/disk1/share# ./idle3ctl -g103 /dev/sda
Idle3 timer set to 3810.0s (0xff)

Shonk

Is this "feature" of over parking fixed in the WD Red series or do all WD drives need fixing with this Linux prog?

Is it a case of run it once in Linux and then drive fixed forever or run on every reboot? Just thinking it might be easier to run on a desktop PC then put drive in the NAS.

Interesting.... I have two brand new LS-WVL 4.0 units and sure enough.... 8 second parking. That's sure as hell getting changed. :shock:


EDIT: And done. Now reporting 3810.0s ... much better. I should add, these are WD "Green" drives.
