How to get rid of wonky twonky?

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
 2879 root     S <      11M   896  0.0  9.0 smbd
 1054 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1000 root     S <      10M   999  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1046 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1020 root     S <      10M  1000  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1049 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1048 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1052 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1044 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 1045 root     S <      10M  1020  0.0  8.8 twonkymediaserv
 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?

 

Thanks

ssh to sharespace and paste the command

 

/etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver stop

Re: How to get rid of wonky twonky?

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?

 

Thanks,

Login under root through SSH and execute the following:

chmod ugo-x /etc/init.d/S97twonkyserver

 

or

 

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.

Re: How to get rid of wonky twonky?

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

"Download" 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...

 

Thanks again,

jb

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.

 

Thank you!

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.

 http://<sharespace_url>:9000/rpc/stopserver  doesnt keep the server shot down. Twonky starts up again once you restart the sharespace. We need a permanent solution.
