On this page, graphs show the write and read accesses to the installed hard drive(s).

Following information is displayed:

  • read megabytes
  • written megabytes
  • state of the hard drive(s)

A click on “SMART-Information” reveals technical data of the hard drive.

If more than one hard drive is installed in the system, one diagram for each hard drive is created.

If a second hard drive is installed, there is no need for it to be always active. IPFire supports powersaving and sends unused devices into sleep mode.

Section “disk usage” shows the disk usage of every partition. Here you can clearly see how much memory is used and where.

The “inode” section shows how many inodes are possible, how many inodes are used and how many are still available. If you are interested in what an “inode” is, you can read more about it here.

In section “transfer” the data transfer (read and written data) of every partition is listed.

For even more information about the hard drive(s) you can run

hdparm --help 

in the console.
