ZFS causes unwanted disk activity

After boot, I did wait for several minutes without start any VM or CT but observed too much disk activity when there is nothing running, only proxmox services.

I am using RAIDZ1 spread in 6 disks.

Anyone had similar experience ? Is this something normal ?

This is the IOSTAT and there is no significant difference when the drives are active. Sometimes the disks get inactive for 1 second and then return to get active for several seconds.
