Greetings,

I’m running CentOS 5.x on one ancient but reasonably reliable machine:
root@leeloo ~> uname -a Linux leeloo 2.6.18-308.24.1.el5 #1 SMP Tue Dec 4 17:42:30 EST 2012 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux root@leeloo ~> cat /proc/cpu cat: /proc/cpu: No such file or directory root@leeloo ~> cat /proc/cpuinfo processor : 0
vendor_id : GenuineIntel cpu family : 6
model : 11
model name : Intel(R) Pentium(R) III CPU family 1400MHz
..

I am running some fsck’s on some of the larger drives (750GB and 2TB) that are used for backups. There is a verbosity flag (-V); but because of the size of the drives along with slowness of the processor, the process is taking a long time.

And there is no indication how much of the process has been completed
(nothing like a %tage indicator), at least the way that I am running it.

Is this expected, or is there some way of amping up the feedback?

Much thanks,

Max Pyziur pyz@brama.com
