1 Hi,
3 on different systems I see the write stats (/proc/dikstats) to
4 physical existing disks steadily increasing.
5 Looking at the output of lsof I cannot find any file suspicous
6 for receiving those writes.
8 In the context of preserving the live of flash media by minimizing
9 the count of unessary writes I want to know which
10 application/daemon/etc is continous writing to that media and which
11 """entity""" (file/pipe/fifo...) is receiving those writes...
13 How can I find that information?
15 Thank you very much in advance for any help!
16 Best regards,
