from "man vinum"
init [-S size] [-w] plex | subdisk
vinum init initializes a subdisk by writing zeroes to it. You
can initialize all subdisks in a plex by specifying the plex
name. This is the only way to ensure consistent data in a plex.
You must perform this initialization before using a RAID-5 plex.
It is also recommended for other new plexes. vinum initializes
all subdisks of a plex in parallel. Since this operation can
take a long time, it is normally performed in the background. If
you want to wait for completion of the command, use the -w (wait)
Specify the -S option if you want to write blocks of a different
size from the default value of 16 kB. vinum prints a console
message when the initialization is complete.
