I successfully migrated my NAs from whs2011 to OMV two weeks ago.
Everything is configured and working great (smb, sickbeard, deluge, ....) and now I'm trying to lower idle power consumption.
My setup is: asrock z87E-ITX + Pentium G1820 + 4Go RAM 1.35v + SSD + 3x WD red 3To + 1x 1T0 5400rpm
Currently with OMV, it is 17W when disks are spindown: it's not bad, but I'm perfectionist
My idle power usage was around 12W in windows.
I check with powertop, 98% of the time in C6 but I can't hear the high pitching noise of the cpu I have in w8.
I googled for solution, and found these tweaks
I'll give it a try tonight.
I also read that installing OMV on top of a fresh debian 7.5 can help (better drivers and optimizations)
Is it correct?
Thanks for your help.
