  Description     : report system wide file access events

fatrace (File Access Trace) reports file access events from all
running processes. Its main  purpose  is to find processes which keep
waking up the disk unnecessarily and thus prevent some power saving.

Please see this blog post for the justification and how to use it:

It has been in Ubuntu for a while, but I got a request to put it into
Debian as well. It's a tiny little tool which doesn't require much
maintenance, it's by and large done for its main purpose.
