Now the IO Wait are 30-50% and make this node are very heavy. The zpool status said:
Bash:
zpool status
  pool: vmdata
 state: ONLINE
status: Some supported and requested features are not enabled on the pool.
    The pool can still be used, but some features are unavailable.
action: Enable all features using 'zpool upgrade'. Once this is done,
    the pool may no longer be accessible by software that does not support
    the features. See zpool-features(7) for details.

Finding answer from the internet, I didn't find the current zfs version by invoke this command:

Bash:
# zpool get version vmdata
NAME    PROPERTY  VALUE    SOURCE
vmdata  version   -        default

Any hints to solve without reboot? Or just reboot the node to solve this problem?
Any feedbacks are appreciated <3
 
Hi,
the kernel messages indicate that there are tasks taking very long to complete. Is there much happening on the host, e.g. many running VMs? What physical disks do you have? What does zpool iostat -v 1 5 say? Your running kernel is also rather old, upgrading to a newer one is recommended.
