[Done] Trigger Activity on a Disk from the Web UI
« on: August 04, 2013, 08:25:36 am »
I would love to be able to trigger some activity on a specific Registered disk via a menu in the Web UI.

The purpose is to see the activity led of that disk blinking on the case, so I can locate the disk.

Makes sense. Too bad that most systems have a single disk activity light for the whole system.

A pity as it's so nice in the dark (except if it's in your sleeping room   8)
Isn't: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCPaXPNF7_8

Mine has ;) and it seems to me the only way to locate for sure a drive  :)



Or, we could listen each disk with  this until we fine the one that "sounds sick"  ;D

Do we want this on the physical disks or on the registered disks?

I am thinking more on the physical disks.

Definitively on the Physical disks as they will possibly not be all registered yet !

This would by the way (-- advertisement --) never be an issue if there is a node with the "physical" name under each registered disk : http://forum.flexraid.com/index.php/topic,2501.0.html  :P
