I have an ext3 partition on a compact flash device. I was thinking of
reducing the commit interval to say 30 sec, but I'm not sure it's really
What I'd like to know is if ext3 will *actually* do any writes to the
journal if none of the data has changed, and given that it's mounted
noatime. eg, if only one file is modified every hour, will the journal
still write every 5 seconds?
I am using ordered mode btw.
