I think that is _very_ unusual even though it's ATA133. To test
(theI've just started a resync of a 500Gb array made up of two ATA133
drives - started at 0930, the initial estimate is 264minutes.
assystem doesn't do anything else).
I guess the main issue here is that my host is quite busy running
Samba server, and it also hosts a VMware virtual machine setup.
My resync has now been running a little over an hour, and is 22.8%
Looks like the initial estimate is going to hold.
Looks a bit ridiculous.. Maybe I should just lift off the disks and
put them onto an idle machine, just to get it over with.. Current
speed is hilarious.. ;-)
It's not only ridiculous, it's dangerous. The longer it takes to
resync, the higher the risk of the valid drive also failing.
If the disks are the same make and model and were bought at the same
time, the risk is even higher.
PS: -12.9C huh? It must be winter where you are :-)
Yep, it's winter in Sweden alright. Even the cat (no matter how
friendly _he_ is) refuse to go outside today..
These drives are not of the same brand, nor the same size, they're only
in the box to make a somewhat safe backup storage while moving from 9.3
to 11.1. So I won't use them when the upgrade is done, I just felt
backing up some 160+GB would be a bit faster using drives than the old
tape device in that box. Now I know better.. ;-)
I'll pull the disks and put them in another machine which is idle, just
to make the build and see how they perform in that one. I'll report
back in a while..
Now then.. I pulled the drives and hooked them up to another box, booting it up
from DVD to rescue mode.
I can see a _slight_ difference in rebuild performance, now it tells me it'll
be finished in 18 minutes. From ~1000kB/s to ~68000kB/s. I guess that's it
