I’m a bit worried about the 1 min per GB of downtime as that would be nearly 6 hours.
I know in the past it was 10% of that time, if even that, but the time does depend on disk read / write times.
Therefore is there a best time to do this to minimise the downtime? I was thinking about 6am UK time on the london data center as it’s not too early to get up and in one of the quietest hours. Or is there a better time?
