2 min booting time with raid, WHY???
These are my raid volumes:
device size raid type file system mounting point ====== ==== ========= =========== ============== /dev/md0 94 MB raid1 reiserfs /boot /dev/md1 22 GB raid5 reiserfs / /dev/md2 3.9 GB raid5 swap swap /dev/md3 1.1 TB raid5 reiserfs /files
Filesystem is clean Replaying journal.. Reiserfs journal '/dev/md3' in blocks [18..8211]: 0 transactions replayed
Checking internal tree..finished
It seems stupid to require 2 minutes for a raid system to boot... So:
What's my computer doing during these 63 seconds?
Is it necessary?
EDIT: Never mind, the problem is solved. The reason was that I used reiserfs, so I switched to ext3 on /dev/md3. Now md3 is mounted instantly, so the booting time is reduced by a minute.
