A standard Linux mount option, noatime, can be specified when the file system is mounted, which disables atime updates on that file system.


mount -t gfs BlockDevice MountPoint -o noatime

Specifies the block device where the GFS file system resides.


Specifies the directory where the GFS file system should be mounted.


In this example, the GFS file system resides on the /dev/vg01/lvol0 and is mounted on directory /gfs1 with atime updates turned off.

mount -t gfs /dev/vg01/lvol0 /gfs1 -o noatime
