I'm trying to troubleshoot a system, and I don't believe the RAID array is an issue, but I want to rule everything out.
I've already done a consistency check (which took about 18 hours).
I'm now running a "background array scan", and it's been about a week. There's no progress indicator of the task, only a log entry for when it started.
RAIDXpert2 reports a consistent disk throughput of 2.1 MB/sec. For two 8TB drives, that will take about 3 months.
Does anyone know what a "background array scan" actually does? The manual doesn't actually explain it. If the consistency check does everything the background array scan does, then I can skip this and save a lot of time.
Does anyone know if it should be reporting status / progress? The RAIDXpert2 UI doesn't indicate that it's running anywhere except the menu where you can start it. The "Stop" option is available, and the "Start" option is not, so I assume it's still running.
