Should anyone ask, I don't like moving parts


Disks are the most unreliable part of any computer system. They fail reguarly and one did on me today. Thankfully I have a RAID5 system which means that I’m able to run with only 3 of the 4 disks avaliable. Still it’s not a nice situation to be in. I’d been watching the disk scream that it was having problems for the last 6 months. Well today it died. I swung by Bauers and picked up a new one, partitioned it to the same size and it’s currently rebuilding:

Personalities : [raid1] [raid5] [raid4] [linear]
md1 : active raid5 sdc2[4] sdd2[0] sda2[2] sdb2[1]
1142582400 blocks level 5, 128k chunk, algorithm 2 [4/3] [UUU_]
[>....................] recovery = 1.0% (3875840/380860800) finish=130.3min speed=48193K/sec

Moving parts suck.


For the record it should be noted that bunker.imaginator.com was running continuously for the last 210 days.
