I recently installed PLEX and started to build up a video library. Originally I had 4x4TB drives in RAID 5. Everything was fine, no idle noises, etc. Then I upgraded to 4x18TB drives and suddenly I am getting hard disk noise and the blue drive lights will flash in sequence.
What I am looking for is this:
Can you give me direction on how to determine what is accessing the disks? Specifically commands through SSH
I keep hearing about indexing and can be patient if that’s all it is. But it’s been going on since adding the new drives and I just want to know what it is and if its temporary.
More info: When I copy files to the NAS, I do hear much louder activity (obviously). I am an IT consultant by trade so I do know the difference between Heavy, Medium and Idle hard drive noises.
Thanks in advance!
