SubjectImproving Ext2 Reliability

Hello all...

I have a few Squid Internet Object cache servers which handle several
thousand requests for data on the server per hour. Whenever this machine
reboots, it always has problems on disk which it has to correct.

It takes close to half an hour to scan all 9+ gigs of diskspace, which in
itself isn't a good thing. Usually the boot requires us to go into single
mode and scan it manually. Most of the problems e2fsck fixes are due to
duplicated blocks.

Is there anything I can do to improve this? 30 minutes seems like an
eternity for such an important service.
