i have troubles with my system, using iotop i identified bitcoind as the source of problems. I am running bitcoind of bitcoin-0.10.0-linux32 and am using the RPC calls of bitcoind. My wallet file is 112 MB. My assumption is everytime an a new bitcoin address is created the whole wallet file is written to disk. In iotop i see that about ~110MB is written to disk regurarily by the bitcoind process. This is problematic for the system setup because it slows down other processings significantly. And this happens often, more than 1 time in a minute.
Can i do something about it?
Thank you Cahoiner
This problem still exists with current bitcoind 0.11.2.
I assembled statistics with inotifywatch. I watched the bitcoin directory for 4800 seconds, the results are: Wallet file modifications: 7585738 (ughh !!) Modifications in subdir chainstate: 1290930 (also high, pls lower this)
