Where to run hdparm during boot?
On my Dell Inspiron 7500 I found out that playing around with hdparm can
help increase disk throughput from about 3 Mb to somewhat around 6-7 Mb
using the following setting:
hdparm -X66 -c3 -m16 -d1 -u1 -W1 /dev/hda
Regarding the usage of hdparm I have two questions:
(1) Even though 6-7 MB is no phantastic result, it is still much better than
before. Do you have any idea of how to improve performance even more?
(2) After several tests with stable results I decided to make this change
permanent. I think (I'm not sure though) I should put this command somewhere
in /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh. Is this true and if so, where do I put it? In
not, what file should it go in (and where)?
Thank you very much.
