5 Tips To Speed Up Linux Software Raid Rebuilding And Re-syncing

Recently, I build a small NAS server running Linux for one my client with 5 x 2TB disks in RAID 6 configuration for all in one backup server for Mac OS X and Windows XP/Vista client computers. Next, I cat /proc/mdstat and it reported that md0 is active and recovery is in progress. The recovery speed was around 4000K/sec and will complete in approximately in 22 hours. I wanted to finish this early.
