Riak 1.4.12 high I/O while almost idle

Unfortunately (not really…) the I/O has now stopped. Looking at the CPU usage and load graphs in New Relic it seems the high I/O stopped about two hours ago. I will see if I find anything unusual in the Riak logging around that time and post it. Otherwise I’m just happy that Riak is behaving normal (just like the other nodes).

>> Hi Timo. Did you check if there is active anti-entropy activity? [1]  That could generate a lot of I/O in the background while building the trees with the data needed for automatic repair or running exchanges to verify replicas are up to date.
