  1. ZFS and special device how to use unused free space ?

    This is very interesting information, thank you. I will do some testing and will see.
  2. ZFS and special device how to use unused free space ?

    Interesting, can you give me an example how to put a template there ? I can't comprehend how to litereally drop a file there. As for "After the template and the real VM diverge after updates, you get a very strange I/O response time from the view of the VM. " - Not sure I understand, is this...
  3. ZFS and special device how to use unused free space ?

    Thank you, however I already have set this to 128k to match recordsize of 128. volblocksize is 8k and I cannot change it... unfortunately. It works pretty well considering I only have win kvm machines at the moment. What I wanted to know is if I can literally put 5 templates on that device, and...

    Yes, that's what I`m asking the question about.
  7. ZFS and special device how to use unused free space ?

    Thank you, I've read about this already. I can't rebuild the rpool, unfortunately at this point. I was thinking to simply use mount to "/mnt/sdd" for example; is that not an option ? As I said, I would only store templates, etc.
  8. ZFS and special device how to use unused free space ?

    I know this might be a stupid question, but it also my be a good question. I've done a mistake and setup a special device with 700+ GB in mirrored mode, the mistake being too much space dedicated for this. I have already a separate partition from this for SLOG, but that's unrelated to the...

    Hello, Has anyone succeeded in offering auto IPV6 from a range via dhcp to vm's ? I`m looking more specifically for using the IPV6 range that OVH offers. Any information is appreciated.
