failed harddrive hot swapped

Last Modified: 2015-04-01

FS server was showing red light on disk activity so I ran the HP insight online diagnostic and the result was one failed harddrive. I hot swapped replaced it with an identical one yesterday.
Now server is verrrrrrrry slow, I can’t even open the array config or diagnostics.
i thought rebuilding the drive shouldn't take longer than few hours but this one is taking much longer.
please see photo attached; the 2nd drive on the left that is the new one. only the arrow symbol is flashing green but the actual disk is not steady green like the rest.

my question is; what is the best way to confirm that the drive is actually rebuilding and all is going smoothly?
thank you for your help
