Purely anecdotal, but we've been using gmirror on top of glabel since FreeBSD 7.0. First on CompactFlash disks using CF-to-IDE adapters (ata(4)), then with CF-to-SATA adapters (ahci(4)), then with SSDs (ahci(4)). These systems have been upgraded through 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, and now run 8-STABLE (from early April). No issues relating to the use of gmirror or glabel, even when replacing disks in the mirror. I've also run gmirror on glabelled USB sticks, although the quality of the sticks and the USB stack made that flaky in the extreme when combined with a very active ZFS pool (7.x days). We've since removed the CF disks and switched to using SSDs due to speed issues. -- Freddie Cash fjwc...@gmail.com _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
