Default fsck.ext3 -yv /dev/sda1 on 1 terabyte partition. very slow. how to tell what is happening?

You say its very slow.

Does anyone know how much memory fsck needs to check a large filesystem?
Does it take more memory for a larger fs in a linear fashion? E.g.
OpenBSD needs 1 MB per 1 GB fs size to fsck. If the box has less memory
than this, fsck hits swap and really slows down.

Is this 1 TB filesystem on the same spindle as your swap partition?

Doug.

This is no answer to the question, although it may be of interest:
There is an on-going discussion on the linux kernel mailing list about speeding
up fsck for ext3, see, e.g.
