    Redundant SLOG device?

    Hi, I've got a question about SLOG. I'm not sure if it has to be redundant. What I've read so far says, that it does not need to be redundant because if device fails, the ZIL just goes to the pool where it would be without SLOG anyways. OK, but I never had a completely failing SSD so far. If I...

    Bug in FreeNAS smartmontools

    I've got a five-disk RAID Z2 array made up of WD Gold 10 TB disks that I've had running for about half a year under FreeNAS-11.1-U5. I noticed a while ago that not one of these disks has ever successfully completed a single SMART test. It doesn't matter if I run the tests under load or right...

    Disk Writes sometimes Interrupted?

    Sometimes when writing things to disk, such as copying between locations in the ZFS volume, or moving items across the network, starting a new disk write, such as saving a new file, will interrupt other processes either locally or remotely that are also writing files, causing them to fail. If I...
