badblocks -- how much time does it take?


I did a

/sbin/badblocks -c 10240 -w -t random -v /dev/sda2

where sda2 is a 320 gb partition. The process has been running for
approx 18 hours and is just over three thirds. Is this really supposed
to be so slow, or is there something wrong? The machine is a Core Duo
1,6, 2GB memory.
