I posted a question about samba 4.3.11. I posted the strace of smbd. Yes it was on a WD device.
But I quess I didn't say that it was a strace of smbd. I also posted this question.
What condition would cause smbd to call quotactl every minute? It also
does a stat64 on each mount point in the mtab file.
again I didn't say that it was smbd process.
I've found a few cases where different versions of samba seem to access the disk every minute. Doing things

say that when smbd is started with the -D option it starts 3 processes. During this time smbd is not accessing the disk.
But at some point in time a fourth smbd -D process starts up and that process is the one I did the strace on.
