Subjectfinding reasons for disk spin ups
Hi all,
(please cc)

is there a way I can find the reasons why my disk is spinning up again
and again? I tried to monitor io with
iotop -o -d 0.01 -b -qqq -t
but sometimes the disks spins up without anything showing up.
The partitions are mounted with noatime.

Is there any kernel interface telling me why/whcih process called for
the sync so that the disk wakes up?

Thanks a lot
