[Feature request] Updating of manpages could use ionice
Last modified: 2011-01-31 07:36:01 EST
Description of problem:
Updating of manpages could be handled with some 'ionice' lowered priority.
I'm not sure if 'class 2' (best-effort) or 'class 3' (idle) - for desktop
I would prefer 'idle' myself - but I could understand, that for server there should be some max time for updates - this could be handled via some
preferencies in /etc/default ?
Package mlocate is already using ionice (with class 2)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
update of manpages is noticeable by user - disk gets slower.
Better user experience when using good old rotational drives.
Debian/Ubuntu's man-db cron jobs use the idle class for this.
Thanks, fixed in man-db-2.5.9-3.fc15.
