I have an XFS partition on simple 4-disk RAID-10 array.  The array is

/raid/data - which in turn has a number of subfolders.

Doing a simple "ls /raid" has no problems.  Similarly, no issues with
"ls /raid/data/stuff".  But ... executing "ls /raid/data" results in a
delay, sometimes in minutes, before it returns.
How many files are in /raid/data, excluding subdirs?  If it's many tens
of thousands ls will be slow, but I'd not think multiple minutes worth
of slow.
0 files, 7 subdirs, 1 symlink

I think I figured it out - and it has absolutely nothing to do with XFS. That symlink? It's to an autofs nfs mount - which doesn't exist.

Removing the symlink seems to have resolved the issue.
