Im searching for a solution to spindown a SCSI HDD on a RedHat Linux System. Something like hdparm with IDE HDD.

There used to be a program called scsi-idle which did this for 2.0.x and 2.2.x kernels (required kernel patch), but I don't think it was ever updated for 2.4.

Yep, thanks. Found that program.

But i noticed also that it does'nt make sense to spin down a scsi hdd when linux is up.

Thanks anyway
