No, I didn't. Thank you, I now have laptop-mode-tools + 29 dependency
packages installed. Btw. it's a tower PC, not a laptop, but that
shouldn't matter to monitoring disk activity.


$ dpkg -L laptop-mode-tools | grep conf

it has got no default conf, however running

# lm-profiler > /var/log/lm-profiler.log

already seems to do what's needed. If not I'll read the FAQ link you
provided and do some Internet research.
