Cancel a running raid-check

If you have a weekly cron job which runs raid-check and you want to stop it from running again just comment out the relevant line in this file..


If the job is already running and you want to kill it just do this..

echo "idle" >/sys/block/md123/md/sync_action

where "md123" is whatever mdraid you have.

When running that file will contain "check" instead of "idle".
