I turned compression on for several ZFS filesystems and found performance
was still fine. I turned gzip on and it was also fine and compression on
certain filesystems is excellent. I realize all the files that were on the
filesystem when compression=on did not get the benefit of gzip when I set

I would like everything to be compressed with gzip. What's the easiest way
for me to accomplish this? I figured some sort of copy back and forth is
required, but I don't know what would be fastest. Should I just rsync
everything to a new filesystem with compression=gzip set and then delete the
original and and rename the new one, or zfs send or ?? Can I do a send and
receive into a filesystem with attributes set as I want or does the receive
keep the same attributes as well? Thank you.
