Would this have any effect on the speed of an 'ls' in the .zfs/snapshot/ directory? I'm guessing not, since that would have more to do with generic directory listings and general slowness in 'ls'. But one can dream. :) Afterall, the 'ls' *is* just querying the name and not all of the other ZFS properties. :D We do most of our snapshot accesses and listing via the .zfs/snapshot/ directory, which can take several seconds before the list starts to appear when there's a couple of hundred snapshots there. _______________________________________________ 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"
