Kjournald is taking too much io?

Good afternoon.


This question:

Has CentOs 6 on it two hard for 500GB, both on ext3.

iotop shows that kjournald very often starts to eat a lot of IO


According to the wiki, takes default configuration journaling from ext3 is ordered, ie should not be a heavy load.

running mount with noatime flag


Where else can you dig it?


Thank you.
