Re: [linux-lvm] LVM commands extremely slow during raid check/resync

I'll try the patches when I get a chance. In the mean time, I've
provided the info you requested as well as a "profiled" run of "lvcreate
-vvvv" attached as lvcreate.txt.gz. The file is pipe delimited with the
2nd field being the delta timestamps in ms between the current line and
the prior line. When that lvcreate was run all arrays, except md0, were
doing a check.
