The options are as follows:
-I interval
  The amount of inactivity in seconds of a disk after which the disk should get stopped Adding a suffix of m, h, or s (the default) indicates that the update interval is specified in minutes, hours, or seconds, respectively.

BUGS

The gstopd daemon is currently only able to stop disks which are connected to CAM(4) subsystem.

Since it stops disks using the external camcontrol(8) tool it will be difficult to get the disk with the root filesystem on it stopped.
