    virtual nas silliness

    A typical AiO setup with ESXi and a storage VM requires two independent disk controller (Sata, SAS HBA or M.2) On one you install ESXi, the other is given to a storage VM in passthrough mode. With an SAS HBA physical raw disk mapping of single disks to VMs is also a supported option. So with...

    The Tty.so is part of Expect. This error results from a newer unsupported Perl. Part of napp-it is Tty.so from OmniOS for Perl up to 5.34. It worked for OI as well. Does the problem remains after a logout/login in napp-it? What is the output of perl -v btw OI is more critical than OmniOS as...

    1. A ZFS filesystem can only exist below another ZFS filesystem but can be mounted at any point (must be an empty folder, default mountpoint is /pool/filesystem). A pool itself is also a ZFS filesystem. This is no limitation, this is the way ZFS works. Usually you create a ZFS filesystem ex...

    napp-it is switching from mini_httpd to Apache 2.4 Up to now the webserver below napp-it is mini_httpd. This is an ultra tiny 50kB single binary webserver.

    If write stalls to a basic vdev (this is what you have as slog), zfs is waiting forever for the io to be finished as otherwise a dataloss of last sync writes happens. Action: reboot and "replace" slog with same or remove + readd. Maybe a clear is enough then. Last sync writes lost (up to 4GB of...

    If you have enabled acceleration (acc) or monitoring (mon) in napp-it (topmenu right of logout) there are running background tasks. Acc tasks read system informations in the background to improve respondability for some time after last menu actions.

    A newer napp-it is faster than an older due optimized reading of ZFS properties. Another reason may be enabled acceleration (read properties in the background), see toplevel menu near logout.

    Napp-it default tuning increases nfs/tcp/vmxnet3 buffers/servers. Regarding ESXi you may try advanced settings of the napp-it VM and set latency to low.

    In the end you can only increase efficiency ex with Jumbo or faster disks, reduce raid calculations ex with mirrors that also improves multistream read, reduce disk access with RAM or avoid extra load ex due encryption.

    Yes I am too. For a pure 28/5 pool this should work In a "production" environment you would use Windows Active Directory for user management.

    For the ACL settings you can check aclinherit settings of the filesystem or its parent. If you remove -R only the filesystem is replicated not the ones below (-I keeps the datasets between source base-snap and next incremental source snap) Job-IDs must be unique

    You can use any snap for an initial full replication. For ongoing incremental replications you need common snap pairs for a target rollback. You cannot switch from -i/I to -R on incremental replications as you lack the common snappairs for daughter filesystems/zvols. As the target filesystem...

    Radian RMS-200/RMS-300 vs Intel OPTANE 905p for ZFS SLOG

    Intel Optane is the fastest NVMe with around 500k write iops, only RAM is faster and the RMS 300 is build on RAM. Latency is nothing to concern with RAM. Random write iops is an indicator of latency. As the RMS has more than twice the iops, I would expect latency to be less than halve of the...

    1. You cannot create SMB only users. Every user must be a regular Unix user. This is the case for Solaris and its forks. Only difference is the password. For Unix the pw hash is stored in /etc/shadow while the SMB password is in /var/smb/smbpasswd (different structure). If you create a user in...

    Raid-0 and Raid-Z stripe data over disks. On access you must wait until any disk is ready. Only sequential performance can scale as any disk must hold only a part of overall data.

    OpenSolaris derived ZFS NAS/ SAN (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, Solaris and napp-it)

    Iops of a Raid-Z [1-3] is like a single disk while sequential performance of Raid-0/Z scale with number of datadisks. So iops are quite the same while a Raid-0 may be faster sequentially (not relevant with NVMe)

    NVMe passthrough is a very critical part of ESXi. Some configs work, other not. In last case I would use the NVMe under ESXi and give vmfs vdisks to VMs Main disadvantage is that all data go VM -> vdisk driver -> ESXi driver instead VM -> native driver. Mostly this is acceptable and ESXi is...
