Not necessarily faster (in fact, RAID-Z variants have known limitations which are not so pronounced in RAID5/6), but definitely more convenient and in some respects safer. I would test very carefully if you need speed and stability from ZFS. For one thing, you will probably want to reduce the block size in ZFS to 8K or such. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
