      I took the script down because I see a problem with the process
      ppc_uartd and mips...

      Can someone with LS2 do a:
      top
      and report what is the process name that contains the uart daemon?? I
      validate that this process is running on ppc. I need do the same on
      mips.
      The LS restarts the uartd every night between 2 and 4 during it's
      house cleaning. (While this is happening AutoFan has not know)

      What is the process name that runs the uart daemon on LS2??
      This will kill a bug on mips,
      -Sam.

      ... Hi, I think that you would like a LS2 user to type in the following: bash-2.05a# top and post the results: Mem: 26752K used, 35116K free, 0K shrd, 2848K

          It doesn't seem to be showing. To be expected really as top shows
          the programs running in order of CPU use (most first) and uartd (or
          whatever it's called) won't be using anything to show.

          Try running:
          ps -auxwww

          That will show all processes running with the full path and
          commandline. If not I'll post it when I get back in the morning.

          Cheers,
          Al

                Okay to get the script to work on LS2 it is desireable to know the
                name of the UART daemon.
                If we can find it, that could be a problem for LS2. I can modify the
                logic to asume the uartd is running.

                How can we find the uartd on LS2?:
                On the LS1 it is called "ppc_uartd" in /etc/init.d/
                It is launched at boot time from /etc/rc.d/rc2.d/

                Can someone with LS2 reply with the output of this command:
                ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc2.d

                Here is what I get on LS1:
                lrwxrwxrwx root 18 Jun 19 02:50 S01murasaki -> ../init.d/murasaki
                lrwxrwxrwx root 17 Jun 19 02:50 S10ntpdate -> ../init.d/ntpdate

                Let me know about the findings.

                I took the script off line because it will start on the LS2 but
                there will be problem handling uart status.

                  I did a cat of /usr/sbin/mc_ctld and there is stuff talking about the
                  UART, TTYS0 and the watchdog. So I think for sure this it the file.

                          Hi,
                          just wanted to add that I'm really interrested in this feature as well
                          What exactly is the problem running it?
                          If I issue "echo -n '\\\\' >/dev/ttyS0" the fan slows down etc.

                          my linkstation2 with Openlink 0.52b gives the following output to ls:

                            To owners of noisy LS2's, (the Linstation fans have a short life)

                            As the father of the CnQ script, if you want me to make try and make
                            it work on LS2 I need the exact name string of the UART daemon
                            process on LS2 called "ppc_uartd" on LS1. Know that there is a
                            condition when this process is stopped and I need it to run. So I
                            always make sure it is running before handling any status change.

                            I read the entire page below all the way down, no trace of UARTD
                            there. INSTEAD OPEN A TELNET ON YOUR LS2 AND TYPE THIS: ps -ef
                            Then post a reply with the output or whatever is the UARTD name
                            string.

                            It boils down to test on LS2 you can try to bypass my script
                            manipulations of UARTD, then refresh my memory about why it is
                            required. It won't wipe out your disk instantly but I
                            *sort*of*recall* that daily cron log rotation around 4am stops the
                            UARTD and without it the fan speed is stuck in watever status it was
                            before UARTD stop (thus explaining why I always check on it and
                            restard it when needed) - Well if I had an LS2 handy I could figure
                            this out.

                            I have an enhancement up my sleeve to redirect log outputs to an
                            external USB key so the HDD does not get spun only to dump 2 lines
                            at the bottom of a log file. I see that happening about every 3
                            hours where instead my disk could sleep non-stop unless the network
                            needs it.
                            Sam.

                                Hi,

                                Has there been any more progress (or help needed) on getting this
                                working with the LS2.

                                My fan is beginning to make my LS sound more like a jet engine than
                                a 'discrete' storage device.

                                If any more info is needed, am more than happy to supply

                                Thanks

                                Andy

                                  The relevant process on LS2 is "mc_ctld". It seems to behave exactly
                                  as "ppc_uartd" on LS1, although on my LS2 (Openlink 052b) the fan at
                                  some point seems to start back up again after the script turns the fan
                                  off, even though the disk hasn't start spinning again. To get around
                                  this, I modified the script so that when it checks the fan status and
                                  sees the fan speed is in theory already set to low, I echo the command
                                  again to set it low just in case mc_ctld has set it high again.

                                  Also, regarding the logs, my LS2 with Openlink has all the logs on a
                                  ramdisk that gets backed up and restored to the HDD on
                                  startup/shutdown and once a day during the log rotate cron job, thus
                                  avoiding spinning up and shutting down the disk just to update the logs.

                                    I've been having a look at Cool&Quiet on the MIPSEL, I was/am getting the problem of
                                    getting C&Q to run properly because my drive wouldn't stay in standby mode for very long
                                    before Samba and 'kupdated' would ping the drive and spin it back up. Which renders
                                    C&Q useless because it's very rarely in standby mode.

                                    Due to this I've been working on a script which is called by cron every ten minutes that
                                    checks the disks spinning status, and/or temp and adjusts the fan speed accordingly. It's
                                    still a working project, but here's the script I'm using:

                                    #!/bin/sh

                                    # HD
                                    #
                                    MAX_TEMP=35
                                    DISKSLEEP="$(/sbin/hdparm -C /dev/hda | /bin/grep 'standby' -c)"

                                    # AVR
                                    #
                                    TTY="/dev/ttyS0"
                                    SLOW="\\\\"
                                    FAST="]]]]"


                                    # ... we need to be 'root'
                                    #
                                    if [ $UID -ne 0 ]; then
                                    echo "You need 'root' permissions for this script. Try 'sudo silence'."
                                    exit 1
                                    fi

                                    if [ "$DISKSLEEP" = 1 ]; then
                                    echo "${SLOW}" > $TTY
                                    else
                                    HD_TEMP=`smartctl -A /dev/hda | awk '/^194/ { print($10) }'`
                                    echo "Current HDD Temperature: $HD_TEMP"
                                    if [ $HD_TEMP -le $MAX_TEMP ]; then
                                    echo "${SLOW}" > $TTY
                                    else
                                    echo "${FAST}" > $TTY
                                    fi
                                    fi

                                    exit 0

                                    Basically, it checks if the HDD is in standby, if it is the fan speed is set to low. Else, it
                                    checks the HDD temperature, if the temp is over 35c it allows the fan to move to high, else
                                    sets it to low.

                                    I also found that if you access 'smartctl' to obtain thr hdd temp it spins the drive back up,
                                    so it useless to use when the drive is alseep, hence it is called late in the process.

                                      Thanks! That script looks good. I just installed smartmontools on my
                                      dev box to try it out and I can get the temperature down from 38
                                      to 26 C by keeping the HDD spun down.

                                      The only thing I want to add to your script is

                                      (a) a whole load of logging so I can see what is going on
                                      (b) test the temperature if the disk is in standby n times in a row
                                      otherwise we might just be catching it after a load of activity but
                                      in fact it is quite hot. However doesn't seem much chance of that
                                      even though I set called hdparm -S6 /dev/hda3 (spin down after
                                      30 seconds) it is not spinning down. I really don't want to
                                      get into why this is: if there are processes that need to do IO
                                      then they need to do it
                                      (c) after calling smartctl, call hdparm -y /dev/hda3 because the disk
                                      will have been woken out of standby

                                      BTW what does AVR stand for?

                                        Thanks woody - I've been working on this a bit recently, and since my post a number of
                                        things have changed. Firstly I've stopped allowing cron to run the job as it 'wakes' the
                                        box, and am now running it in /etc/init.d on a loop, which seems to be working well.

                                        (a) Logging is still to add at a later date.
                                        (b) I had the same problem of the box not spinning down, it came down to 2 processes
                                        which kept waking the box: ftp and samba, once I turned both of them off it sleeps like a
                                        baby. I've also run logging tests of the temperature of the drive while in spun down mode
                                        and it cools quickly.
                                        (c) I don't want to allow smartctl to check the temp while sleeping, as I'm running the
                                        script to check every 1 minute, if I allowed it to check the box wold never sleep.

                                        The AVR does lots of things, but importantly controls the speed of the fan.

                                        Will keep you updated once I get the script progressed..

                                          To those who successfully installed the Cool´n Quiet Script on LS2,
                                          could anyone post the scipts to the Files-Section? I have still the
                                          scripts from frenchy and did not suceed in adapting them.
                                          I´m convinced, also some others would be very happy about it!

                                          Many thanks in advance,
                                          Oliver

                                            Hi:

                                            I got tired of the slow samba serving speed on NSLU2 and got the LS2
                                            (MIPS based) yesterday . I flashed it with openlink, installed
                                            twonkey, smart monitoring tool, and other development tools. Works
                                            like a charm, I can serve high bitrate DVDs to MG-35 with no
                                            stutter.

                                            However, the fan is really noisy, and I plan to keep LS2 on 24/7.
                                            The following Cool'n Qiet script modified for LS2 will be
                                            nice to use if someone has more info on it. Is it OK to use the
                                            script as it is, or is there an updated one?

                                            Thanks again to the LS Development team.

                                            Regards,

                                            Bharat

                                              I have a great cheap solution that's quite straightforward and does
                                              not require taking apart your unit.

                                              Take the linkstation and put it somewhere where you won't hear it.

                                              I've done this on my MIPs linkstaiton and it works fine. Once I work
                                              out how to port this over to my PPC linkstation I will do that.

                                              08:10:59 up 94 days, 20:37, load average: 0.05, 0.06, 0.19

                                              It's not as if I have to keep on turning the thing on and off. That's
                                              the only reason it needs to be close by isn't it?

                                              If anyone needs help them I'm prepared to write a detailed guide with
                                              illustrations and photos.

                                              Cheers,
