openhab2\addons\README file being constantly accessed

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: i5-2500/8GB/SSD (OS) & Pooled Mechanical Drives (StableBit Drivepool)
    • OS: Windows Home Server 2011
    • Java Runtime Environment: 1.8.0_144
    • openHAB version: 2.1 Stable

Within my setup, openhab is installed on my pooled drives (so that the installation is duplicated across multiple disks) - but this is, as far as I’m aware, transparent to the OS.

Within DrivePool, it shows a list of files which are being accessed - for reading or writing.

The “addons/README” file is always in this list when openHAB is running. Is this likely to be a “phantom” entry, or is openHAB consistently trying to access this file?

openHAB watches the addons directory to see if a binding jar file is added or removed. I suspect the watch service is causing the README accesses. You could make it stop by removing the README file.

That seems to have done the trick - thanks :slight_smile:
