    Performance drop after adding another vdev.

    I had a pool consisting of 6 mirrors (12 drives total). I added two more drives ie one more mirrored vdev to the pool. After doing that I ran bonnie and noticed that both my reads and writes were about half what they were prior to adding the drives. Is this speed drop due to ZFS putting a...
