Re: [Linux-cluster] gfs_fsck estimation

Hi Matias,

I don't think it's possible to estimate the run time of gfs_fsck.
If the file system is clean, it should be doable, but the problem is
that different kinds of corruption cause especially long delays,
and that corruption is unpredictable.

Another thing to be aware of: Starting with RHEL6.3, the fsck.gfs2
is now able to analyze and repair GFS1 file systems as well as GFS2,
and it is orders of magnitude faster. It's also much more accurate in
its analysis and more able to repair corruption that gfs_fsck would
just give up and throw away.
