I am looking at a ZFS volume on FreeBSD system, and I have no idea what RAIDZ level it is configured at. How can I find out using the ZFS command line or other?

I tried "zpool status" already, and got this:

    TANK                                            ONLINE       0     0     0
      raidz1-0                                      ONLINE       0     0     0
        gptid/19481bef-c121-11e3-bd5b-0cc47a005e96  ONLINE       0     0     0

the thing that seems even close to what I'm looking for is "raidz1-0" but I'm thinking that is a numbering scheme only and not an actual raid level.

zpool status will list all of the drives and their layout, including mirror/RAID level.

In your case, raidz1-0 means you are running raidz1 and the group number is 0.

Thanks, I tried that. But it didn't give me what I need. I guess I should update my question as to what I already tried. –  7wp Apr 24 at 20:01
    
@7wp see my edit. –  longneck Apr 24 at 20:04

You were running the right command. zpool status -v is the correct way to understand what a ZFS pool is comprised of. A better example, as the vdev groups are enumerated, beginning with 0. Note the multiple mirror groups and single raidz group below:
