raid migration

Can anyone tell me how long it would take to migrate a 2 disk raid 1 set to a 3 disk using 3 36.4Gb U320 SCSI HDD's. The server is a DL380 G3 using a 642 controller. How may Gb's per minute?

Many thanks.

usually it takes 10-15 minutes per GB

Didn't your momma teach you to say thanks!

Re: raid migration


Be aware however, that if the priority setting* is set to low then the migration will only start if there's no disk access, which can give the impression that the migration has been running for ages.

The BBWC module will also speed things up.



* - I forget the exact name of the setting
