So I setup a MacZFS RaidZ rather easily and was happy with myself. I had four 3 TB internal SATA drives in a zpool giving me around 9 TB of space.
jamess-imac:~ sangie$ zpool status murr pool: murr state: ONLINE scrub: none requested config: NAME STATE READ WRITE CKSUM murr ONLINE 0 0 0 raidz1 ONLINE 0 0 0 disk3s2 ONLINE 0 0 0 disk1s2 ONLINE 0 0 0 disk2s2 ONLINE 0 0 0 disk4s2 ONLINE 0 0 0 errors: No known data errors So I Filled it up with about 5 GBs of data, mainly images and FLAC/music files and everything just drags on it. It takes a long time for files to be listed in finder and when I try to save an image from Firefox, it will just grind and grind while I try to navigate to a folder. I have vmware Fusion setup on my SSD (my main Mac drive) and doing anything on my zpool from Windows (like using MediaMonkey to organize FLAC files on it) uses up 100% of the CPU, freezing up my computer until the moves are done, even when moving around 30 files. Is my zpool okay? What's going on? Is this type of slowness normal or do I have a bad drive? How will MacZFS report to me if a drive in the array goes bad? I installed SMARTReporter Lite and it shows all drives as green. If I have some drives on SATA II and others on SATA III would that affect anything? If you want me to run any tests on it, I will do so gladly. Just let me know. Thanks! -- --- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "zfs-macos" group.
