DragonFly kernel List (threaded) for 2005-12
Re: Plans for 1.5
:Very exciting stuff indeed, as I read through the documentation and
:watched the demos on http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/zfs/ I
:become curious how you are going to implement the NFSv4 like ACL scheme?
:Also I am a bit confused in how deeply you planned to use ZFS.
:Is this like only root in UFS and the rest in ZFS? How about swap?
I'm thinking eventually a complete replacement, assuming that the
core port pans out. ZFS has some amazing self healing properties
that are clearly far superior to current technologies. You can add
and remove portions of the topology (add mirrors, RAID elements, etc)
on the fly without having to do complete disk rebuilds. It is clearly
capable of handling a filesystem that might be strewn all over a
cluster of machines or even have portions which exist 'out there' on
the internet. It is clearly capable of delivering high levels of
data integrity and security on huge multi-terrabyte filesystems. It
doesn't need an 'fsck' at all. Just a ton of reasons.
