With 512 / 4096 sectored disk units, MSD reclaim runs single threaded. This can result in a MSD taking hours to complete. On a system with 4tb of memory C6004242 - Reclaim main storage: pass 1 step 2 took four hours and fifteen minutes to complete. When the client performed the MSD they had 4tb of memory and have since increased that to 6tb. By the end of the year will likely be at 12tb.
MSD is used to collect data in the event a client has experienced a catastrophic event that has impacted business operations. The data collected greatly improves the chance of identifying root cause.
