No reshaping progress information

  • Hi,
    system is being reshaped after 2 drives have been added.
    I see no percentage on the gui, nor actuall speed ad projected completition time.


    It would be good to have this information.


    However, how could I obtain it from the command line ?

  • cat /proc/mdstat

  • Hallo,


    how much time does a reshaping need?


    I have expand my RAID5 (4 x 1TB) with 1 drive same size, but the "progress bar" does not continues.
    However, the light indicator flickers very heavy and the cpu load is also high, it seems he´s doing something ;-))
    Actually there 3,9% completed, time left: 612min.... a joke?

  • how much time does a reshaping need?

    Depends on lots of factors... drive speed, drive size, system speed, etc.

    Nope. That is only 10 hours. It might speed up at the end.

  • Ok, reshaping process has been finished.


    As an improvement: the complete task (what´s going on, what I have to do....) should be explained before starting.
    - reshaping has taken more than 11 hours
    - resizing has to do next (how should I know that)


    A plus is that the resizing process will be updated automatically, so I can follow time and status....

  • I tried adding a drive and it is now listed as a spare and I can't grow the RAID.

    How do I tell it it is not a spare but it is part of the RAID?
