Re: Questions about software RAID level 1 (how long should it take to sync, etc?)
okay, I just got to work and after doing a cat /proc/mdstat, I see
[===========>.........] recovery = 59.6% (94640896/158577472)
I've googled a bit, but I can't seem to find any way to safely stop or
pause the synchronization process that was started with "mdadm --add
/dev/md0 /dev/hda1".. Does anybody happen to know if this is
possible? At this point, I don't mind losing all the data on the
drive that's being sync'd, but I'd rather not kill the source drive.
Reboot, fix your drives, and then let it re-sync. You wont lose
anything on the primary.
Something is very wrong with your hardware I think. Your speed factor is
off by at least 1 magnitude from what i see when I sync.
Recent motherboards with SATA drives will get speed=50000K/sec+ IIRC.
cat /proc/interrupts and see what that says - you might be getting irq
