How do you find ZFS performance in an asymetric mirror, and does it
seem to cope OK if the remote disc fails ? One of the reaons I have stuck
with gmirror is that it seems extremely tolerant to having one of the
drives vanish from underneath it (as sometimes happens with a remote disc).
When I experimented doing this with ZFS I found that it did not work well
at all (lock ups until the disc I had taken away came back).
