There is one option called "utility priority". You can control system performance with this but again then initialize will take long time to finish.

You can change the priority at which the Verify, Reconstruct, Expand, and Initialize utilities run when there are active I/O operations competing for the system’s controllers.

To change the utility priority
1. In the System panel, choose Action > Advanced Settings > System Utilities.
2. Set the Utility Priority option to either:
High. Use when your highest priority is to get the system back to a fully fault-tolerant state. This causes heavy I/O with the host to be slower than normal. This value is the default.
Medium. Use when you want to balance data streaming with data redundancy.
Low. Use when streaming data without interruption, such as for a web server, is more important than data redundancy. This enables a utility such as Reconstruct to run at a slower rate with minimal effect on host I/O.
3. Click Apply.

 

Hope this helps!
