In my /etc/fstab file, I put:
# /etc/fstab: static file system information. # # Use 'blkid' to print the universally unique identifier for a # device; this may be used with UUID= as a more robust way to name devices # that works even if disks are added and removed. See fstab(5). # # <file system> <mount point> <type> <options> <dump> <pass> # /boot/efi was on /dev/sda1 during installation UUID=2745-104C /boot/efi vfat umask=0022,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,noatime 0 1 /boot/efi/grub /boot/grub none noatime,bind 0 0 UUID=6d1b0ab8-273e-4fe7-93b0-90f74d7154d1 none swap noatime 0 0 UUID=50b12da3-a64d-4bea-89e4-44f24f69e1de none swap noatime 0 0
noatime option. Just as disabling atime via ZFS increases data throughput for ZFS-owned devices by not having to write file access time each time a file is accessed, so too does it work for the non-ZFS partitions.
Boot is snappier, the desktop pops up quicker.
