Find out, why your disk never stops

If you have a small router and want to find out, which program keeps the harddisk busy, try this:

echo 1 > /proc/sys/vm/block_dump

And take a look into your syslog. So you can find out, why your disk is never spinning down even if you configured power management to do so.
