    ZFS Opinion: 2-drive mirror most capable of recovery (?)

    Hi, Are 2-drive mirrors really the easiest pools to recover one can find in the wild? If recovery capability is paramount to all other considerations, should it indefinitely be the best option? I'm asking this question because I recently had a 4-drive z-mirror fail to import, it was reported...

    I find this page about FreeBSD mirrors but when I'm trying to use one in the `FreeBSD.conf`, It won't allow my to do that. Are mirrors that work with `pkg` different than these ones? Where can I find mirrors to use with `pkg`? P.S. Please don't tell me "pkg should install the best mirror based...

    ZFS Performance: RAIDz1 vs mirroring

    In my home PC, one of my two HDD that I have in (btrfs) RAID 0 failed. So, I am shopping for the replacement. I am planning to install FreeBSD (zfs) and set up RAIDZ (buying 3 SSDs). Now, I am reading everywhere that mirroring 2 disks (1 vdev per disk) is faster than RAIDz1 with 3 disks. And it...

    ZFS zfs - Filesystem-Migration - That's right?

    I'm not a newbie on ZFS but I have never used before a RAIDZ2 pool. Now I have migrated two VMs to another host.
