What you're probably seeing with incremental sends is that the disks being read are hitting their IOPS limits. Zfs send does random reads all over the place -- every block that's changed since the last incremental send is read, in TXG order. So that's essentially random reads all of the disk. -- David Dyer-Bennet, d...@dd-b.net; http://dd-b.net/ Snapshots: http://dd-b.net/dd-b/SnapshotAlbum/data/ Photos: http://dd-b.net/photography/gallery/ Dragaera: http://dragaera.info _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
