This might not carry over to vmware, iscsi vs nfs. But with virtualbox, using a local file versus using a local zvol, I have found the zvol is much faster for the guest OS. Also, by default the zvol will have smarter reservations (refreservation) which seems to be a good thing. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
