I checked the status of the LVM before starting xfs_repair. I can't promise it's all in order, but at least the various pvdisplay, vgdisplay, lvdisplay, etc all came back normal. So... I'll just wait a few days and hope that xfs_repair comes back with something eventually.

thanks for at least taking an interest, too bad that there's nothing we can really do about it.

So if I see I/O activity and cpu activity, which I do, should I assume that eventually the repair should return?

The repair _MAY_ return, unfortunately...

We are thinking of interrupting it and trying to add more memory and restarting it. Maybe we should just let it go.

Yes, let it go now...

If you think it might finish some
time, even if it's going to be another day or two, then I'm willing
to be patient. I'm just worried it might be going around in circles.

It should finish if you're testing the right device, and the LV is
properly assembled. If it reach the end of the device and find nothing,
you should restart LVM first to check that your PV/VG/LV are correctly
set up, and retry.
If it doesn't work after that, backup will be your last friend.
