Re: Converting RAID5 to RAID6 and other shape changing in md/raid

12 February 2011, 19:46 UTC

I just started a switch from raid6 to raid5, and it says it's going to take over 2 weeks to finish:

md0 : active raid6 sdc[0] sdh[5](S) sdg[4] sdf[3] sde[2] sdd[1] 5860543488 blocks super 0.91 level 6, 64k chunk, algorithm 2 [5/5] [uuuuu] [>....................] reshape = 0.0% (245760/1953514496) finish=21189.7min speed=1536K/sec

Is there any way to abort it?
