I checked that first and the counter is still zero.
A short smart self test doesn't produce any errors either.
And I also tried to dd to and from both drives at the same time after I
encountered the performance problem. There were no problem.
I also swapped both drives, so the faster one is now wd2, but the
same problem occurs with wd3.
