Fast cvfsck question


We have three SANs that have started failing over very frequently after we updated to Mavericks and Xsan 3.1. After trying a great many things, I'm concerned that the SAN definitions might corrupted.

I've just learned about the cvfsck command in Xsan, and the steps to check if a volume has problems. I just have one question:

1) How long does this process take? The first two SANs are the ones we're concerned about. SAN1 is 42 TB and SAN2 is 36 TB. We're in the middle of Baseball Season and we're ingesting a lot of video of the Seattle Mariners every day. We need to find a time to run this test but I'm not sure how long it could take. Any approximate guesses?
