    Software RAID 5 state : Dirty


    Hi All,

    System: RHEL4, latest updates and patches.

    This is the output of mdadm /dev/md0 --detail

    I'm curious about the "State : Dirty" is this something to worry about?

    It will show "State : Clean" sometimes and "State : Dirty" other times.

    Can someone expand on the meaning of "State : Dirty"

    Thanks,

    Joe

    Not sure but it seems to be ok.
    Check out the Redhat Web site:

    Yea I've read that, it doesn't really explain 'State Dirty." Just shows there example of it showing up.
