Hello out there, I had to replace a HDD on a RAIDZ1 pool comprised from 4 HDDs, each 3 TB (netto size of the pool is about 8-9 TB, the used amount is reported to be ~ 6TB).
I just started the rebuild/resilvering process and watch the pool crwaling at ~ 18 MB/s. At the moment, there is no load on the array, the host is a IvyBridge XEON with 4 core/8 threads and 3,4 GHz and 16 GB of RAM. The HDDs are attached to a on-board SATA II (300 MB/s max) Intel chip - this just for the record. Recently, I switch on the "sync" attribute on most of the defined pools's zfs filesystems - I also use a SSD for ZIL/L2ARC caching, but it seems to be unused recently in FreeBSD CURRENT's ZFS - this from a observers perspective only. When scrubbing, I see recently also reduced performance on the pool, so I'm wondering about the low throughput at the very moment when resilvering is in progress. If the "perspective" of "zpool status" is correct, then I have to wait after two hours for another 100 hours - ~ 4 days? Ups ... I think there is something badly misconfigured or missing. The pool is not "tuned" in any very sophisticated way, since I trust the kernels ability to scale automatically - if I'm not wrong for amd64 ... Are there any aspects to look at?
