    How do i safely get rid of this 1 drive stripe?

    I dont want the stripe. Want to get rid of the stupid stripe and move da4p2 into one of the raidz arrays. Backstory is that at one time, i had one or two 8TB SATA drives that were only recognized as 2.2TB by the very old SAS controller. i had attempted to put them into their own RAID set to...

    2 drive mirror READ performance (no ARC) beats 2x2 mirror?

    I've got two volumes on the same FreeNAS 11 box that use HDDs for data storage: -- #1 is a 2 drive mirror using 5 year old WD Se 4 TB HDDs (WD Se was the predecessor to WD Red Pro) -- #2 is a 2x2 mirror (like a RAID10) using brand new WD Gold 10 TB HDDs Both are set up the same way with full...

    RAID 0 y discos de diferentes tamaños

    Hola a todo el mundo, tengo una máquina virtual con FreeNAS 11 en Virtual Box para hacer experimentos y aprender a manejar este sistema operativo. Según tengo entendido, si armamos un RAID 0 con discos de diferentes tamaños, el RAID sólo va a coger de cada disco, tanta capacidad como el tamaño...

    What performance increase should be expected from a striped pool?

    I'm preparing to use an all-SSD FreeNAS server I just built in a QEMU/KVM cluster for use as iSCSI storage. Before I do so, I've been running some performance tests on various types of ZFS pools. The SSDs I'm using are 1 TB Crucial MX300s. According to Newegg, The read/write spec listed is...

    Striped mirrors not setup correctly

    I have a FreeNAS Mini (4x HDD) with 4x 3TB drives. It's supposed to be setup as a RAID 0/1 striped mirror: 1 mirror extended by 1 mirror. I'd expect this to show roughly 6TB of disk space, but it shows 3TB leading me to believe the second mirror is a mirror of the first instead of an extension...

    Enhancing a pool of mirrors - can I add extra disks in these ways?

    I've tried to research this but can't find an answer, with luck someone here will know. My new server will have its pool built as a set of mirrored HDDs. I would want to stick with mirrored HDD vdevs, or at most mirrored 2-way stripes, rather than RAIDZ, due to read+resilver speed/resilver...

    Stripe boot volume (not mirror)

    Hello, and thanks in advance for any input. I have just setup FreeNAS for the first time (very excited to start using this software). I used 2x 32GB SSD's as the boot volume. While installing, I did not see any option to specify how multiple drives get configured for boot. Right now, my...
