I'm creating an OCFS2 fs for use with DRBD and it's taking an awful long time to create the filesystem.
I haven't done it before so I'm wondering if someone with more experience can relate how long it should actually take? I googled but strangely couldn't find anything on this.
The underlying disk is 2x500GB EBS volumes over LVM.
It's been running for about 1hr15 mins now.
My I/O wait is staying steady at 48-52% and mkfs is in the D+ state. I don't know if its actually doing anything or if its hung.
I cancelled it before (after about 15 mins) and tried again because I assumed it had hung, so its not a once-off problem.
Here's the output:
