    ZFS Benchmarks - how to they look?

    I'm trying to optimize my file server - but not sure if I am even seeing reasonable performance as it is, so maybe someone can look at the benchmark results below and let me know if I am in the ballpark of what should/could be expected?

    NAPP-IT - Moving whole pool - DATAMOVER or no?

If yes can I just choose the pool (no specific folder/ZFS file system) or do I have to do it file system by file system? Or is there a better way to...

    Looking to update OmniOS/NAPP-IT from r151014

    Just looking for some info, looking to update OmniOS to a more current build. What would be the best (safest) way to go about this, export pools, spin up the new VM OVA and import the pools, or do an update through some sort of package manager from within OmniOS? running on ESXi 5.5. Thanks!

    Intel E10G42AFDA vs E10G42BTDA

    Sorry this might seem like a silly question... but does anyone know what the difference is between these two cards? AF vs BT? Looking to use with the BSD based FW connected to an ES-16-XG if that makes any difference. Cheers!

    Horrible network performance ESXi 5.5U2

    Honestly I don't know where to go from here, but every time I try something new something isn't working for me the way it should. Finally copied all my data over from my old Z1 pools to my new 10x 4TB Z2 pool on my new server hardware. Splurged and got all Server grade stuff to make things...
