Trying my wd get useful and working, so, try to get understand, who, and what way i can there.
so far, i use:
- gives some temperature, i suppose - cpu temp?
- gives memory situation and swap file use
- gives a cpu consumption, disk lod with iops and so info.
if trying to run these you get message “[root@DMyPassport ~]# top
‘xterm-256color’: unknown terminal type.”, then do :
also there is usable commands as
- gives average system loads and uptime
- it was, as some another linux uztilities there, in wd, a lame version, of true ones, so, the argumentds like ps -ax and so on not worked there, sadly.
chmod a-x S85wdmcserverd
chmod a-x S92wdnotifierd
turn off execution bit from those two files ( must do in /etc/init.d/ ), so they not start on system boot.
you can reverse situation with
chmod a+x S92wdnotifierd
like - use + instead of minus.
who i need to know - how to safe install mc ( midnight commander) there?
how to get battery state and charge level info from cmd?
more about device temperatures.
there are also iotop util, but sadly, it is not working.
it was may be good for determine, what process use hdd at most.
hope, you also share your knowledge regarding this.
yesterday, after about month of struggling with this PoS, i decide to turn off wdmcserfer and notifier, because i see no any real advantage from this, but the same time on each start they have to eat RAM, and CPU, do device very laggy and oerheat…
all what i need - samba server, ftp over wifi, and sometimes - dlna ( twonky?)…
not need shitty indexing of all my files, making thumbnails and so on, especially, when all that lead to reall slowdown, overheats and crashes with all leds flashing - and all that with only 1.8 Tb data on it, and 1.2 Tb free!
