Although this is true, it's only true to the extent that "corruption" is a term applicable to power loss. If some database application is performing operations all over the place, unaware of what ZFS or any other filesystem sync policy is in force... Then ZFS ungracefully crashing with sync disabled and rewinding to some previous state would be just like ext4 having the power yanked out suddenly. If your application is able to survive power loss, then it's able to survive ungraceful crash with zfs sync disabled. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
