That can easily be changed:

not sure it's a good idea on a server. On this box, I *need* a safe
reboot, better wait than have a corrupted filesystem... also there is
an UPS question regarding boot/stop

But if the full check is automatic after some number of mounts you don't
have the control over it.

I prefer the check when _I_ want it, not the system.

The journal is checked at every boot and if there's a problem(s) you'll be
prompted to do a manual check, which is fine.

I'm talking about automatic _full_ check which I dislike and disable.

Ted Tso (the ext4 maintainer) recommends for servers:

1) No auto fsck

2) Put FS on LVM

3) Routinely (from cron) make a snapshot

4) fsck the snapshot and check for errors

5) If errors, notify admin so they can schedule down time to run fsck
and fix them.


Now there you might have a point for me to start using LVM :)

I've never seen its benefits, but snapshots could be it, thanks :)
