    Best OS for Atom + 2GB Ram Netbook

    Yep. 64 bit uses 250-300 MB more ram and I did not see much improvement on the YouTube video decoding. It is a bit more snappish then Mint XFCE. Thanks, I think I found my OS.

    35 Disk ZFS Pool, Go or no?

    I was also looking into different OS systems to run. FreeNAS, is near the top of my list, but ProxMox look nice as well since it has native ZFS support as well as a lot of virtual machine built right in. What do you use? are you happy with it?

    Best OS for Atom + 2GB Ram Netbook

    Will try. Messing around with SLAX. I was having issues with youtube with Mint XFCE. would not do 720p. Ran 240 fine though. I did some research and it looks like the 64bit version decodes video better than the 32 bit version. So I will try that as well as smooth scroll disable. I have a...

    35 Disk ZFS Pool, Go or no?

    Ok, this just thought to me the 2TB drives I have may be 512 drives and not 4K, I know from past bads this is bad. Is there away to force ashift 12 instead of 9? or should I separate the 2TB pool as a separate zpool instead of a vdev of my current pool until more drives can be sourced.

    35 Disk ZFS Pool, Go or no?

    Ram is maxed out on my system at 32GB of DDR3 registered (8x4GB), so I cant go any higher. Well, since this is mostly used like a WORM storage high IO would not really be needed. at most I will have 4 different connections pulling different files for payback.

    35 Disk ZFS Pool, Go or no?

    I am not sure by how much my IOPS will increase, since my upgrade path was a bit odd. I did not start out with 33 empty drives, but as my zpool filled up, then I expanded or added a new vdev. so the pool is not filled evenly (files split among all drives and vdevs) so not every drive is...

    35 Disk ZFS Pool, Go or no?

    Ok, I have done a lot of reading and it looks like as long as I am using 4k drives (I am) that going upto 32 disks per vdev is ok. But I cant find any performance info on it other thank IOPS will be in the 1 disk drive. which is fine since most disk provide 120-180 MBps now, so my main...
