Raid Bad Blocks [08/04/2009]


Recommended Posts

At about 1am PDT on August 4th we were alerted to bad blocks being reported on the Titan servers raid array. The server currently shows an optimal state on the array but bad blocks are something that should be investigated. We're going to run a verify on the raid array right now at 12pm PDT to verify the integrity of the data. We're hoping this reveals a drive to be bad which we will then replace.

We're going to replace the raid card it's acting very strange as if it's going to fail reporting all sorts of things that make no sense. We're going to do this ASAP and it'll require the machine be off line for hopefully no more than 20 minutes.
