    Acrossd process will continuously write to disk. This is causing performance issues on my system.

    Server running on the following system:
    OSX 10.9.5
    Intel Core i5
    Across Center v1.00 (Server Mode)

    Client:
    Windows 7
    Across Center v1.00 (Client Mode)



    OSX IOSTAT reports the following:

    How do I configure acrossd from writing to disk so much?

    Hello,

    Thanks for your good question. The problem comes from the operation of acrossd keeps writing its operation status to a file to reflect the status to the Across Center process. I did not know its writing size is too much like that.
    There will be the first major update for all platforms within some days and the update will fix the problem. If the update would not fix the problem, please feel free to let me know.
