comment Increase SSH ConnectTimeout greater than 60 seconds
Interesting - so to increase it, you change sysctl net.ipv4.tcp_syn_retries. On my Ubuntu VM it was already at 6, which according to the article should have given a timeout of 45s, not 77s. Anyway, I'd accept that as an answer if you want to make it one. (My server eventually shutdown, so I don't have the personal need anymore.)

Ah, ok. I guess that's the actual issue here.

comment Why does my RAID 1 NAS have to “synchronize”?
For empty disks? Ok. But in any case, I previously did a Time Machine backup to there, and it then slowly synced to completion. Now I copy another 1TB onto the disk, and again, a very slow sync process afterwards. Although I did inadvertently force-shutdown the NAS (sigh: 1.5 seconds on power button = soft shutdown, 5 seconds = hard), so maybe that has triggered the need for a complete resync?

But that's not what's happening. The creation (and initial synchronisation) was very fast - a few minutes. But since then, it's very slow - something like 36 hours since I first started copying 1TB on.

Would all distros know how to talk to the hardware RAID? (Sorry if dumb question...)
