One thing I keep a look out for, is in gstat, if one drive is busier
than the others, it's a clear sign of a drive dying. Offlining and
replacing the drive usually makes a huge difference.

Also, in all of these cases, SMART data shows no sign of problem and no
errors in 'zpool status'. Just watch and see if any of the drives is
working harder than the others has been the surest way to troubleshoot
performance issues, in my experience.
