Is it true or false that: ZFS might skip the cache and
go to disks for "streaming" reads?
I don't believe this was ever suggested. Instead, if
data is not already in the file system cache and a
large read is made from disk should the file system
put this data into the cache?
BTW, I chose the term streaming to be a subset
of sequential where the access pattern is sequential but
at what appears to be artificial time intervals.
The suggested pre-read of the entire file would
be a simple sequential read done as quickly
as the hardware allows.
