- How do you monitor the progress of dd? 12 answers
I have to
dd a couple of 1TB hard drives. They are taking several hours to clone and I was wondering if there was any way possible of knowing how fast they are going, how much they have done and how long will they take to copy the rest.
All I can see is the terminal with the command running. When I run
ps -e at least I know that
dd is working from the CPU usage shown, but I have no way of knowing how much it has done or how long it will take to finish.
Kind of makes me crazy.
