Hello all,

doing a pvmove from old to new storage and it is taking for ever.


pvmove /dev/mpath/gxfer4_1 /dev/mapper/compel1_gxfer1

progress after about two weeks
   /dev/mpath/gxfer4_1: Moved: 42.1%

   LVM version:     2.02.74(2)-RHEL5 (2011-01-28)
   Library version: 1.02.55-RHEL5 (2010-11-09)
   Driver version:  4.11.5

The devices are 10TB each but it should not be taking this long.

Any assistance is appreciated.
