Anyone know why that is? Was hdparm changed during a recent update maybe? I just updated Slack a few days ago...
I also upgraded the version included with Red Hat 9 to v5.4. This is the version I used for the test in my previous post. Maybe this is the reason for that readings...

I have repeated the test and obtained very similar results.
