    Default TLP and BTRFS

    Hello,
    After reading this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/TLP I stumbled with a really scary section that says:

    btrfs

    To avoid filesystem corruption on btrfs formatted partitions, set:
    Code:
    SATA_LINKPWR_ON_BAT=max_performance
    That page links to the following issue: https://github.com/linrunner/TLP/issues/128

    After installing and enabling TLP I didn't used with the battery for more than half an hour just in case this issue could occur.

    Although the issue was reported with a Lenovo x240 (I have a Dell Latitude E6440), I'm afraid this issue may happen.

    Does anyone has experienced this issue? Is the TLP default configuration safe to use with BTRFS? Does anyone tested it?

    Update: I've been using the laptop for some hours with battery and TLP enabled and I could not see any error log related to the SATA link or btrfs.
    I checked using:
    Code:
    smartctl -l error /dev/sdb
    dmesg
    journactl | grep btrfs
    journactl | grep ata

    Maybe, but take a look at this: https://www.reddit.com/r/archlinux/c...warning_still/
    It's from 2016.

    Hi
    Don't believe everything you read on the internet So how does something in Arch relate to openSUSE, 42.2 was released last month... seven months after that thread.... a lot can happen in that time. If it's a concern, rather than wondering, raise a bug and get confirmation as to whether it is applicable or not to the openSUSE releases....

    But the internet is always right! (OK no, but sometimes do).

    I know that 7 months have passed but I wanted to make sure if it was a known issue.
    I've got no issues so far, I'll report a bug if I encounter any problem with TLP and Btrfs.

    Thanks.
