Yeah, everybody needs a different cleaning rate depending on number of physical disks and
use of faster devices like advanced disk arrays or SSDs.

I first thought that the cleanup rate could be a formula like 100 + #disks * 80
but SSDs and disk arrays can do more than that so probably the best thing to do is to have
a parameter for the cleanup rate and use 200 as the default value.
