SubjectRAID extremely slow
Hello,

I'm having a problem. After a while, my software RAID rebuild becomes
extremely slow, and the filesystem on the RAID is essentially blocked.
I don't know what is causing this. I guess it could be a bad drive, but
how can I find out?

I used atop to show the transfer speeds to each drive. Here's a
screenshot:

"smartctl -a" for all the drives looks good to me, no pending failures,
or errors logged. dmesg doesn't report anything wrong with any of the
drives. It does, however, report lots of hung tasks, which are trying
to access the RAID volume. For example:

[51000.672064] INFO: task mythbackend:10677 blocked for more than 120
seconds.
[51000.672098] "echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/hung_task_timeout_secs"
disables this message.
