    3 x ZPOOL ATTACH in a short time - integrity confirmed okay, or resilver manually again to be sure?

    This is a case of "check carefuylly and there won't be any problems", and I suspect the answer is "it'll be fine", but I'd like to have it confirmed by someone with a lot of ZFS experience "just in case". I have a vdev of 3 x 4TB in my pool that I want to upgrade to a vdev of 3 x 8TB. So I...

    RaidZ2 endless resilvering

    Hi all, I am running FreeNAS-11.1-U1 and have 16 (1.5 and 2.0TB mixed) drives in a raidz2 pool. I recently had what I believe to be a faulty sata cable causing a device to pop online and offline over and over again. I have replaced the affected disk and the sata cable and it has left my pool...

    SOLVED Resilvering reading all disks in multi VDEV Mirror set

    I was wondering if anybody can help to explain the results I'm seeing when resilvering a disk in only one of the mirrored VDEVs in my Zpool. If I understand Mirrors properly, resilvering one should only need to read the other drive in that same mirrored VDEV. What I am observing is that the...

    Pool status "healthy" when resilvering

    Why does FreeNAS Web UI report the Pool status as healthy when a pool is resilvering. Wouldn't it be more appropriate to say Resilvering XX.X%?

    spare drive in RAIDZ2 - can avoid resilvering twice?

    Running FreeNAS 11 on a new machine that I am testing. I have a pool with 6 disks, 5 drives plus a spare (hotspare?) I meant to add a drive to the 7th bay, but accidentally popped the 6th bay.

    One of my disks is resilvering without obvious reason?

    Quick summary: Hardware is good (supermicro/ECC/Xeon v3/enterprise drives) and server seems good. The pool - which I'm expanding - has been made up of 4 sets of mirrors (call them vdev1:{d1,d2}, vdev2:{d1,d2}, vdev3{d1,d2} and vdev4:{d1,d2}). I'm upgrading them to 3 way mirrors (I like mirrors...

    Is it safe to reboot during a resilver?

    I just replaced a hard drive. It's in the process of resilvering with an ETA of 40+ hours. My question: Is ZFS/FreeNAS designed to safely accommodate shutdown/rebooting during a resilver? --- Footnotes - Obviously, it would be better to let the process finish. For times when that would be...

    Time for resilvering vs RAM?

    Can I speed up resilvering by adding RAM to a machine, or is the deciding factor how full the disks are, regardless of RAM?
