I heard my main zfs pool is scrubbing again so i decided to take a look on it. If first started with refreshing my knowledge by using some zpool default commands.
zpool iostat 2 zpool status 2Both upper commands displays important informations about your pool in an interval of 2 seconds. You can even add a "-v" if you want to know more ;-). After watching the scrubbing for a while, i also remember the existence of some zfs attributes.
zfs get allEt voilà, all attributes are listed very well. I studied the attributes and was quite happy that i already configured a lot the right way. Compression was set to backup and tool, but not to image for e.g. The only thing i missed was the thing about the access time (atime). I really don't care about access time for my files, so it was time to disable this feature to gain some speed.
zfs set atime=off rpoolI was alos not shure if the following attributes are doing what i estimate of them.
sharenfs zoned snapdir utf8only normalization vscan nbmand sharesmb quota reservationBut after quickly asking the world wide web, i found a simple but usefull page called linux.die.net/man/8/zfs. This page lists all available (ZFS v28) attributes and adds usefull informations to it. I was also investigating the compression attribute. But after a while of surfing and testing on my own (by switching compression), i came to that point, that the default compression method (LZJB) is a good balancing act between speed and cpu usage. While using my browsers, i also stumbled over old bookmarks i want so share. hub.opensolaris.org/bin/view/Community+Group+zfs solarisinternals.com/ZFS Best Practices Guide solarisinternals.com/ZFS Evil Tuning Guide docs.oracle.com/cd/E19082-01/817-2271/ lildude.co.uk/zfs-cheatsheet denisy.dyndns.org/lzo_vs_lzjb
