Spindown and iSCSI

Spindown and iSCSI

I have a RN102 (one drive) with only SMB, HTTP and HTTPS running. I activated spindown at 5 minutes and logged the below. I am using iSCSI (although the PC is currently hibernating). It appears every 8 or so seconds it's getting spun up? Would this be via iSCSI or something else waking the drive? It appears I would be much better off keeping it spinning versus the constant down and up...

Re: Spindown and iSCSI

Yes, you should't use spindown with iSCSI.

Do you have any apps installed?

No, I avoid those like the plague... especially with low powered guys.
