I've read your post a number of times but I still don't understand exactly what you are trying to do.

This would be automatic fix -y but -n is NO WRITE.

With those results I would now be inclined to run fsck without either -n or -y and answer the questions as they come. This allows you to CTRL-C...

Yep, there's another copy of the superblock at block=32. (And there will be others).

The search for an alternative superblock failed because you spec'd NO WRITE. So it didn't even try.

That's not too bad on face value.

There's obviously a superblock located at block=16 but the system maintains other copies at other block locations

AFAIR, you should be able to specify an...

Well it's complaining about a media error but, sure, it could indeed be a corrupt sector(s) in the middle of a filesystem.

This is, of course, the root filesystem. Is this filesystem UFS or ZFS?...

Another thought I've had is this.

If you can't do that (because you need the cron scheduled...

Yes, the onboard raid is hotplug capable but, of course, you need to be sure that you're pulling the right disk.

Watch for a repeat of resyncing. If it keeps happening something is wrong (probably with one of the disks). You will also see high disk activity on the disk LEDs which might be easier to spot than...

sar I agree is a good idea. Does the CPU spike coincide with an I/O spike??

In my experience this is likely to be kernel element feature. For example, are you watching the cron process itself...
