    Default % of filled HD = slow?

    Hello!
    System (this is my main DE PC) openSUSE 13.1_64, KDE 4.11.4, APU AMD A3850, 4GM Ram, HD WDC WD8000AARS-0(800GB) Rev 80.0 . File system Ext4.

    I think that I have read that Linux HD's doesn’t have to be defragmented, but when you reach a certain grade of >Xn% full it's getting slower. I did a quick backup to my DE HD for some (for me) important Dir/files.

    Code:
    # df
    Filesystem         1K-blocks      Used Available Use% Mounted on
    /dev/sda2           20510716  13627096   5818664  71% /
    devtmpfs             1752400        44   1752356   1% /dev
    tmpfs                1766752      2812   1763940   1% /dev/shm

    OK, - I need to look into the tread "The wisdom of emptying tmp at boot time" in the forum. A large / but this installation have been around for some time and had been updated on the run (rolling) to newer versions of openSUSE. I deleted /tmp and:

    Code:

    The HD sounds like that a handful of gravel have been throw in to it when new programs started and it's painfully slow.

    Is this "normal" ?

    No and the hard drive making sounds is not good it could be trying to reread a defective sector. Run smartctl to check the health of the drive

    Note you can in most cases defrag a Linux partition but normally it is not needed. and may depend on the file system used.

    No, a hard drive, even the old spinning ones, should not sound like gravel
    ever. Make sure your backup is good and be ready for when the gravel eats
    through your platter and the magic smoke is released from your driver,
    rendering it useless (a drive, or any computer component, that releases
    the magic smoke will not work anymore due to a lack of magic).

    Good luck.

    Ok. I are sick after a big loss of of(double worlds?) data/photos 1996-1999 and thunderstruck here. The backup was on a VM MS SBS2003 server and veritas backup ->SCSI tape station diden't had a way to reread the tapes.

    Just run back up to 2 other disk's to my DE (esata connected local DE) from my server.

    Tested to fill up my local disk to 100%. The Swap was activated at once and was growing by the second.

    Did I get any wiser? Maybe. After deleted backup on local HD I have no problems but can see a purchase in the future for a new HD.

    But that is not. You have never tested the disk. Run the short test,
    read log, then run long test and read log again.

    "smartctl -h" tells you how.

    Is that a laptop or a desktop? Generally, I dislike "green" disks. They
    do things like parking the heads and powering off aggressively. Not bad
    on a laptop, but it shortens the HD life on a desktop.

    Well, that's good :-)

    Have a look at parameters 1, 5, 7, 196, and 197. They should still be zero.

    I don't consider using SSDs here. Maybe on the laptop, but a 500MB unit
    is expensive (200€), and I don't see *any* 2.5 inch SSD unit in my big
    local provider.

    I don't see how systemd comes in the picture here?

    But I do, -I have been asking more then 15 years why it s should be so hard to serve people with a decent graphic interface to do simple user tasks. For a reason I had to start a VM Win8.1 today and using it (IE demands)). I had a check about check HD/Defrag function . It was still there. Easy accessible.

    I admit that I was reading the output for smartctl -h and tried at least 6-7 times before I could get syntax right on my local DE in a Konsole.

    Yup whatever on a Saturday afternoon .

    But systemd does not do anything related to hard disk test. Not fsck,
    not smart testing (which Windows does not do at all, unless you buy or
    download some program for it).

    And systemv did neither.

    Well, no, both can run the smartd daemon, which outputs text to plain
    text logs, and sends emails on emergencies. In beautiful plain text.

    Then there is also dbus-daemon which does something similar.

    And both systemd and systemv run fsck on boot. Only systemd logs the
    result, or tries to.


    You are blaming systemd for some thing that is not on its scope. Wait...
    systemd is out for world dominance... just wait and it will do it >:-P


    You want a graphical tool for this? I did not tell you, on purpose. :-)
    More difficult to tell how to use and paste output on email. But you can
    try "gnome-disks", aka Palimpsest, package gnome-disk-utility. It does a
    lot of nice things. No, I do not know of a KDE equivalent, maybe it exists.

    (careful - that tool can delete partition on a click)
