Save to disc frequency

As with any new program that will run all the time I looked at the disk I/O so it doesn’t grind down my SSD… well it seems that WhatPulse is a grinder :slight_smile:

Right now I see ten 1kb writes per second… guess SQLite likes to write little things often…

Two questions:

  1. can the data directory location be configured? (I know I can just hardlink to an HDD dir).
  2. can the save frequency/disk activity be reduced?
  1. Yep, use portable mode.
  2. Nope, it’s pretty low as it is.

Yet it’s still the top user of I/O when my computer is idle. Why does WhatPulse even need to do something when no input is being tracked (I’ve disabled uptime and network tracking)?
