No, there is no special log file and the command fstrim has usually no output without the -v switch if there is no error. /sbin/fstrim --all is started via cron and the only thing you can see are the messages that cron writes into /var/log/syslog. You could change the configuration in /etc/cron.weekly/fstrim. Open the file in your editor: sudo nano ...

This might be a completely bogus answer, or it might turn out to be absolutely brilliant. I haven't decided yet. Create 3 101GB (100 + 1 for some extra wiggle room) disk image files, and place the disk image files on the respective drives. Then put those disk images in RAID. You should be able to treat "/media/[drive]/image1.img" just like /dev/sda1 in a ...

Best you can do is to shange swappiness parameter The swappiness parameter configures how often your system swaps data out of RAM to the swap space. This is a value between 0 and 100 that represents a percentage. With values close to zero, the kernel will not swap data to the disk unless absolutely necessary. Remember, interactions with the swap file are ...

The ddrescue manual's Algorithm section describes errsize and errors. errsize is the sum of the sizes of the bad-sector "blocks" where a "block" is ddrescue's term for a range of contiguous bad sectors. On the other hand, errors is the count of these bad-sector "blocks". As the manual describes, on each pass after the first, the bad-sector "blocks" are ...

Here is my experience as an owner of a Clevo W560SH (it's almost the same as yours but with a slightly older and more power hungry dGPU). The iGPU temperature should be the same as the CPU temperature. I have a SATA SSD installed and it's temp is around the same as the one in your HDD (39ºC). That SSD temperature is somewhat high, but it is not unheard of. ...

The 231 SSD_Life_Left value is 100 with fail threshold of 10. Same is with 230 Life_Curve_Status. The value is 100. Actually these parameters look perfect.

There is no valid reason any more to have multiple partitions, esp. on personal desktops/laptops. This is even reflected in the default setting for the partition manager: everything on a single partition. I don't bother with a swap partition. IIRC, the Ubuntu installer won't let you install without one, so pick the smallest size you can get away with, and ...

A RAMDISK is a block device that is backed by your RAM. Think of it as a way to use your RAM as a 'hard drive' in the sense you could read/write files to it, however all the limitations of RAM would still apply - notably that it's volatile and rebooting your server would cause all data on that drive to be lost. A Swap partition on the other hand is a way ...
