When set to high, though, our users noticed how crappy performance was. I had upgraded the controller to the newest firmware – thinking that would fix the problem. Adaptec shocked me again. With the industry’s most advanced feature set, the Adaptec SA provides the highest level of data protection. If so, I am not sure where else I can “park” the machine to let it run its course at a faster rate. Finally it booted up.

Post as a guest Name. I thinking of going google and just using cheap boxes no raid and have server redundancy instead. To echo Janneb and Kyle, look for a Rebuild Priority setting. Either way, I figured I would share my experience.

Email Required, but never shown. Rebuilding took about 2 weeks, but afterwards I noticed there is a “rebuild priority” setting which was set to low only when array is idle. Check the BIOS and see if you can bump up the priority a notch. High-performance storage adsptec and data protection for servers and workstations.
Rebuild priority was set on high in Adaptec Storage Manager. Bus System Interface Type. Ideal for supporting server and workgroup applications where high levels of sustained read and write operations are required, such as video streaming, web content, video-on-demand, security and surveillance, fixed content, and reference data storage.

It’s rounding the second 3-week run. I had a similar issue with a HP smartarray controller and a 15? When set to high, though, our users noticed how crappy performance was. However, with the Dell Perc controllers there is a rebuild rate setting.

ReadMe Adaptec Storage Manager v5. I hope it will help. It’s a good thing this is a test machine, because nobody would accept such performance on a live server — insane!
Both machines 22420sa Linux boxes. Changing that to high, and when another disk broke a year or so later, it rebuilt in, IIRC, 8 hours. I had upgraded the controller to the newest firmware – thinking that would fix the problem.
