# Configuration file for /etc/cron.weekly/raid-check
# options:
# ENABLED - must be yes in order for the raid check to proceed
# CHECK - can be either check or repair depending on the type of
# operation the user desires. A check operation will scan
# the drives looking for bad sectors and automatically
# repairing only bad sectors. If it finds good sectors that
# contain bad data (meaning that the data in a sector does
# not agree with what the data from another disk indicates
# the data should be, for example the parity block + the other
# data blocks would cause us to think that this data block
# is incorrect), then it does nothing but increments the
# counter in the file /sys/block/$dev/md/mismatch_count.
# This allows the sysadmin to inspect the data in the sector
# and the data that would be produced by rebuilding the
# sector from redundant information and pick the correct
# data to keep. The repair option does the same thing, but
# when it encounters a mismatch in the data, it automatically
# updates the data to be consistent. However, since we really
# don't know whether it's the parity or the data block that's
# correct (or which data block in the case of raid1), it's
# luck of the draw whether or not the user gets the right
# data instead of the bad data. This option is the default
# option for devices not listed in either CHECK_DEVS or
# CHECK_DEVS - a space delimited list of devs that the user specifically
# wants to run a check operation on.
# REPAIR_DEVS - a space delimited list of devs that the user
# specifically wants to run a repair on.
# SKIP_DEVS - a space delimited list of devs that should be skipped
# NICE - Change the raid check CPU and IO priority in order to make
# the system more responsive during lengthy checks. Valid
# values are high, normal, low, idle.
# MAXCONCURENT - Limit the number of devices to be checked at a time.
# By default all devices will be checked at the same time.
# Note: the raid-check script intentionaly runs last in the cron.weekly
# sequence. This is so we can wait for all the resync operations to complete
# and then check the mismatch_count on each array without unduly delaying
# other weekly cron jobs. If any arrays have a non-0 mismatch_count after
# the check completes, we echo a warning to stdout which will then me emailed
# to the admin as long as mails from cron jobs have not been redirected to
# /dev/null. We do not wait for repair operations to complete as the
# md stack will correct any mismatch_cnts automatically.
# Note2: you can not use symbolic names for the raid devices, such as you
# /dev/md/root. The names used in this file must match the names seen in
# /proc/mdstat and in /sys/block.
# To check devs /dev/md0 and /dev/md3, use "md0 md3"
