Have you tried running multiple dd's in parallel? ZFS likes to have its pipelines fairly saturated, so chances you'll get higher total performance numbers with multiple parallel readers, like this: (create multiple files like /sas2/5g_1, /sas2/5g_2, /sas2/5g_3, etc...) # zpool export sas2 && zpool import sas2 # readspeed /sas2/5g_1 & readspeed /sas2/5g_2 & readspeed /sas2/5g_3 The simply sum up the MB/s from each dd operation. Also, if possible, use larger files, not just 5GB - something on the order a few 100GBs. You can then watch your pool's performance via "zpool iostat sas2 5" (that's how I usually do it).
