hey guys,

my dedi has been purring along until yesterday when suddenly the load has skyrocketed. it's a vmware server. i've gone through each VM and there's no different activity now or load.

i'm running a "top" on the host and see two processes constantly in operation:
[md1_resync] and [md2_resync]. these are there non-stop and the disk looks like it's in hyperdrive given the IO wait time.

what's going on, is one of my drives dead? or has raid gone out of sync and has just been trying to fix it non stop for 24 hours?

already tried rebooting. same issue.
