comment How to monitor BTRFS filesystem raid for errors?
@basic6: Absolutely, and this is great for that. However, it does nothing for detecting errors during normal operation, such as a degraded BTRFS array, until the next scrub. Silent corruption can be dealt with using a monthly scrub for efficiency, but that's too long for other errors.

comment How to monitor BTRFS filesystem raid for errors?
This is a nice idea, and I do it as a regular integrity check. However, it can take much longer than an hour to checksum all the data. Not to mention the wear on hardware if running it continuously to pick up on the errors. BTRFS does checksumming of all normal filesystem operations and that would be a more efficient way to immediately react to them.

comment How to monitor BTRFS filesystem raid for errors?
I had a RAID5 have two drives fail in a short time of each other. I was looking to set up a new system using BTRFS' mirror raid capability and quickly react to drive problems (not necessarily drive failure) to reduce the chance of further damage while providing time to deal with the original cause. I'm hoping BTRFS' N-way mirror will someday work well.
