Doesn't this sound improbable, wouldn't one expect to encounter other chksum

I can't attest to chksum errors since I have yet to see one on my
machines (have seen several complete disk failures, or disks faulted
by the system though). Checksum errors are bad and not seeing them
should be the normal case.
Resilver may in fact be just verifying that the pool disks are
coherent via metadata. This might happen if the fiber channel is
Regarding the dire fiber channel issue, are you using fiber channel
switches or direct connections to the storage array(s)? If you are
using switches, are they stable or are they doing something terrible
