Expansion of vdisk on msa2212fc

I have a MSA 2212fc san with sas drives. I want to add 4 additional drives to this VDisk.

How long can i expect the expansion process to take? Days? Weeks? Can this be done while the system is in production?

The i/o load on this system is pretty light for now, so i would like to do this expansion as soon as possible.

Currently I have 1 Vdisk (raid 6) comprised of 11 300gb 15kRPM drives.

Total space of the vdisk: ~2700 GB
Total USED space on the vdisk: 1325 GB
Luns: 2 (1 TB each)
