The speed of send/recv is around 30-60 MBytes/s for initial send and
17-25 MBytes/s for incremental. I have seen lots of setups with 1 disk
to 100+ disks in pool. But the speed doesn't vary in any degree. As I
understand 'zfs send' is a limiting factor. I did tests by sending to
/dev/null. It worked out too slow and absolutely not scalable.
None of cpu/memory/disk activity were in peak load, so there is of
room for improvement.
Is there any bug report or article that addresses this problem? Any
workaround or solution?
I found these guys have the same result - around 7 Mbytes/s for 'send'
and 70 Mbytes for 'recv'.
Well, if I do a zfs send/recv over 1Gbit ethernet from a 2 disk mirror,
the send runs at almost 100Mbytes/sec, so it's pretty much limited by
Since you have provided none of the diagnostic data you collected, it's
difficult to guess what the limiting factor is for you.
