comment How to decrease the time the processes would wait (blocked) for disk reads (only to discover an error)?
Wouldn't a SMART test be a faster and better solution than badblocks since it's more low-level and wouldn't cause the awful delays on bad sectors? I've been wondering quite a while why don't the tools like e2fsck have an option to incorporate the info from SMART... In my case, the traditional badblocks would also run into reading the bad sectors with huge delays, and take enormous time to complete, I'm afraid. (Once I could solve a similar problem without the hanging on IO, but I had to manually translate and copy bad sector addresses into commands from the output of smartctl. Few of them.

comment Reduce bad block retry / wait times in Ubuntu
@gol What if I want to catch it faster? Without waiting God knows how much time before the IO operation unblocks reporting an error? (Actually, I'm attempting to save the data from a disk with errors, but my problem is similar: running into these "erroneous" sectors causes huge delays. ... Perhaps I could also follow the advice, and invent a way to feed the info from SMART test to ddrescue so that it doesn't even touch the sectors reported by SMART.)

The answer to a similar question about writing would probably help answer my question (if it were known): unix.stackexchange.com/questions/144540/…

comment Reduce bad block retry / wait times in Ubuntu
The question hasn't received a direct answer, so we don't know whether it's a possible thing in linux: How can I reduce the IO wait time and retry times?
