After searching for dm-crypt and ZFS on Linux and finding too little information, I shall ask here. Please keep in mind this in the context of running this in a production environment. We have the need to encypt our data, approximately 30TB on three ZFS volumes under Solaris 10. The volumes currently reside on iscsi sans connected via 10Gb/s ethernet. We have tested Solaris 11 with ZFS encrypted volumes and found the performance to be very poor and have an open bug report with Oracle.
This "bug report" hasn't reached me yet and I'd really like to be sure if there is a performance bug with ZFS that is unique to encryption I can attempt to resolve it.
Can you please provide the bug and/or SR number that Oracle Support gave to you.
We are a Linux shop and since performance is so poor and still no resolution, we are considering ZFS on Linux with dm-crypt. I have read once or twice that if we implemented ZFS + dm-crypt we would loose features, however which features are not specified. We currently mirror the volumes across identical iscsi sans with ZFS and we use hourly ZFS snapshots to update our DR site. Which features of ZFS are lost if we use dm-crypt? My guess would be they are related to raidz but unsure. _______________________________________________ zfs-discuss mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.opensolaris.org/mailman/listinfo/zfs-discuss
