That sounds... wrong, on a jillion levels.

I would rather the array fail on a monthly resync than have it fail on a
resync after replacing a drive and loose everything.

Arrays shouldn't fall out of sync, so a "monthly resync" *is* wrong on a jillion levels.

Fortunately, as Martin Krafft pointed out, it's really a monthly self-test, and -- to a Large Systems DBA -- that's OK.

Dissent is patriotic, remember?
