The command looks correct.
I have put in additional logging points to try and figure out what is
happening and it looks like it's simply a case of the hard drive
spinning up on a regular basis and the script catching it at
the 'wrong time'.
I've tried killing off various processes to see what is initiating
the disk access. I haven't quite narrowed it down, but killing
thttpd, ftp and samba means that it does eventually quieten down. But
I need these running even though real access is infrequent.
Is there a more 'intelligent' autofan utility which relies on drive
temperature or some other method to optimise fan speed?
I have seen mention of using smartmon but douldn't find any
definitive scripts with it working.
