The ShareSpace is slow enough as it is. Mine (4T) also has Twonky enabled. Ilooking at top I see this
root R < 10M 1020 73.8 8.8 twonkymediaserv
3756 root R 788 3466 1.1 0.6 exe
2063 root S 756 1 0.5 0.5 WiAutoConfig

1047 root S < 10M 1020 0.0 8.8 twonkymediaserv
1983 root S 9812 1 0.0 7.7 cvm
This seems quite inefficient that so many instance of something I don't use should be running on what is already a sloth.
How do I turn the **bleep** thing off?
Solved! Go to Solution.

Could you give an example of the SSH syntax to login to the NAS? My *NIX is rusty to say the least (I have four *NIX books, all to old to even mention SSH).
Also, will that permanently disable Twonky or will Twonky restart if the NAS is power-cycled or rebooted?

Login under root through SSH and execute the following:
chmod ugo-x /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver
To manually stop a Service you can run the command “/etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver stop”. When you would like to Disable the Service rename the File and put a “_” in front of it. (Command “mv S97twonkyserver _ S97twonkyserver”). Reboot the NAS when you have changed and check on the Console with “ps-aux” that the Service has not been started anymore.
To enable the Service again just remove the “_” and restart the NAS.

Thanks, chmod did the trick.
I would really like to get rid of the other stuff I don't need:
"WD_Backup" user and share
I got this NAS for a singular purpose and all this just clutters the interface for my users.
However, what progress I've made on that seems to be getting overwritten by SxM_webui ( not really excited about mucking about in there).
I appreciate how plug-and-play it was out of the box, but I wish "Advanced Mode" was just a little more advanced...

ssh to sharespace and paste the command
No, doesn't work for me.
If I take ownership the service will stop but then I loose the web interface to the sharespace, forcing a reset and the cycle starts over.

It did the trick for me and the performance are much improved!
I had to login as root (psw welc0me) and not 'admin'. Then /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver stop. Last - don't forget to rename it and remove the x permission so it won't start next time you reboot.

All this should be possible from the gui, would be nice if some one made a list or some scripts that we could execute so that its easier for us non ssh pple.
According to the FAQ elsewhere here, http://<sharespace_url>:9000/rpc/stopserver should stop the unwanted servers.
