among other things, looking to reduce the reliance on rsync (and
similar CVS'ish or git'ish techniques) having to 'inventory' stuff at
a high per-file level that a 'hammer mirror-stream' (or GMIRROR to
networked RAID) could do 'as you go along' at a lower level - closer
to the actual blocks as they are being written.
How, and how well, would ZFS handle redundant pools on separate sites?
And can that be a streaming process - even if that means the
redundancy target is r/o for 'the duration', as a hammer slave would be?
I have not tried it myself, but there is a ZFS send/receive command,
that might do the trick.
