fstab and ext4 - stop constant disk access, change commit value
Ext4 does by default commit data to the disk every 5:th second sometimes resulting in writes all the time. To change this value you add commit=seconds to the options for the relevant (root) partition in /etc/fstab. Example (NOTE that you cannot copy paste the whole line - you must edit your own): # / was on /dev/sdXY during installation UUID=Your-Root-Partition-UUID / ext4 errors=remount-ro,commit=300 0 1
