Description Kronos003 2011-08-03 18:17:12 UTC
Description of problem:
Ive been monitoring my disk usage in preparation to migrate to an SSD. on drawback of SSD is that you can only write to each sector a set number of times before it fails. if we can reduce the chattyness of filesystem and programs, SSD would be more viable and safer to use for more users.

xfce4-time-out-plugin has written 20.64Mb of data to the drive in small bursts over the past 12hrs. is this really necessary?

here is a dump of iotop -a -o after 12.5hrs
