ZFS - Zettabyte Filesystem

Beginning ZFS instances

There are only two commmands to interact with ZFS.

zpool: used to create a ZFS vdev (virtual device).  vdevs are composed of physical devices.  
zfs: used to create/interact with a ZFS dataset.  ZFS datasets are akin to logical volumes
# zpool creation syntax
zpool create <poolname> <vdev(s)> 
# Create a zpool of six raidz2 vdevs, each with six drives.  Includes two SSDs to used as a mirrored SLOG and one SSD as an L2ARC read cache.  (example commmand was run on qof) 
zpool create ex9 raidz2 sda sdb sdc sdd sde sdf raidz2 sdg sdh sdi sdj sdk sdl raidz2 sdm sdn sdo sdp sdq sdr raidz2 sds sdt sdu sdv sdw sdx raidz2 sdy sdz sdaa sdab sdac sdad raidz2 sdae sdaf sdag sdah sdai sdaj log mirror ata-INTEL_SSDSC2KG480G7_BTYM740603E0480BGN ata-INTEL_SSDSC2KG480G7_BTYM7406019K480BGN cache ata-INTEL_SSDSC2KG480G7_BTYM740602GN480BGN

Adding a zfs filesystem:

Using qof as an example, I will create a child filesystem under ex9 named archive that will be mounted under /export/ex9/archive. This archive will be used to backup user data.

-bash-4.2$ zfs list
ex9          2.39T   249T  2.39T  /export/ex9
-bash-4.2$ sudo zfs create -o mountpoint=/export/ex9/archive ex9/archive 
-bash-4.2$ zfs list
ex9          2.39T   249T  2.39T  /export/ex9
ex9/archive   192K   249T   192K  /export/ex9/archive

Adding L2ARC Read Cache to a zpool

# Look for available SSDs in /dev/disk/by-id/
# Choose an available SSD to use for read cache.  Then decide which pool you want to put the cache on. 
Syntax: zpool add <zpool name> <cache/log> <path to disk>
$ sudo zpool add ex6 cache /dev/disk/by-id/ata-INTEL_SSDSC2KG480G7_BTYM72830AV6480BGN

Tuning ZFS options

 # stores extended attributes as system attributes to improve performance
 zfs xattr=sa <zfs dataset name> 
 # Turn on ZFS lz4 compression.  Use this for compressible dataset such as many files with text 
 zfs set compression=lz4 <zfs dataset name> 
 # Turn off access time for improved disk performance (so that the OS doesn't write a new time every time a file is accessed)
 zfs set atime=off <zfs dataset name>
 NOTE: ZFS performance degrades tremendously when the zpool is over 80% used.  To avoid this, I have set a quota to 80% of the 248TB in qof/nfs-ex9.
 # To set a quota of 200TB on ZFS dataset:
 zfs set quota=200T <zfs dataset>
 # To remove a quota from a ZFS dataset:
 zfs set quota=none <zfs dataset>

mount after reboot

zfs set mountpoint=/export/db2 db2 

when you put in a new disk

fdisk -l

Also switched the bios to boot from hd2 instead of hd1 (or something)

  • Recreate zpool with correct drives
  • Point an instance photorec at each of the wiped drives set to recover files of the following types: .gz, .solv (custom definition)

NOTE: If you destroyed your zpool with command 'zpool destroy', you can use the command 'zpool import' to view destroyed pools and recover the pool by doing 'zpool import <zpool name>'.
