To answer a few questions: - I did not relocate swap to SSD, but reduce swapiness: echo 20 > /proc/sys/vm/swappiness I have 4 GB or RAM, in most cases that is more than plenty for me. As long as top shows 0 swap in use, I would think I am safe. My Main reason for not doing it was that I do run the SSD partitionless to avoid partition alignment issues. - I moved everything on the SSD except some folders in /opt and /home - I tried lsof before, but this did not help, I assume I was too slow. - The inotifywait works nicely :-) Thanks, Rainer -- Rainer Dorsch Lärchenstr. 6 D-72135 Dettenhausen 07157-734133 email: firstname.lastname@example.org jabber: email@example.com GPG Fingerprint: 5966 C54C 2B3C 42CC 1F4F 8F59 E3A8 C538 7519 141E Full GPG key: http://pgp.mit.edu/
