So we have a bunch of SSD disks and would like to put them in a zpool on a Solaris 10 system. The file system will be exported via NFS to about 50 Ubuntu clients which will mount it as their $HOME. I expect that the bandwidth will not exceed 1 Gbit/s, but the latency should be as low as possible because of the Desktop environments running on the clients.
- What is a good configuration for such a zpool? Currently we have one
raidz2with 8 disks + 2 hot spares, but I've read that since a single
raidzis just a single vdev, the performance is limited to the speed of a single disk.
- What are the critical NFS server/client parameters that can be tuned? Currently we use NFS3 with
rsize/wsize, but perhaps there is a better choice for the clients running on Ubuntu.
