Well, I did a reboot this morning, and /dev/md0 failed the automatic
fsck, forcing me to do a manual fsck. There was a whole heap of lost
inodes, bad block mapping, multiple block mapping etc. So maybe the
array instability was a software problem, not hardware related.

Anyway, all's well now, thanks.

I doubt that; the md code is very stable, as are the filesystems. I'd
guess your hardware has some serious issues ... But best of luck.


You may well be right, given that you've a lot more knowledge about linux
systems than I have.

I have set up smartctl to test both drives every night, mdm to send me an
e-mail if the array degrades, a full backup to another drive every night,
so I'll just sit back and wait for more information from my system.

I may well be back for more advice, later...
