SubjectRe: [PATCH] Laptop-mode v7 for linux 2.6.1
From
Date

For the users of laptop-mode patch I find this entry in the manual page
of syslog.conf very interesting:

"You may prefix each entry with the minus ‘‘-’’ sign to omit syncing the
file after every logging. Note that you might lose information if the
system crashes right behind a write attempt. Nevertheless this might
give you back some performance, especially if you run programs that use
logging in a very verbose manner."

Found that after finding out that it was syslogd who spun up my disk:)
