Following instructions here
destroyed my previous ZFS pool with 512 byte sectors and did this:
gnop create -S 4096 /dev/ad4
zpool create mypool /dev/ad4.nop
zpol create mypool/mydir
zpool export mypool
gnop destroy /dev/ad4.nop
zpool import mypool
Now this command 'zdb -C data | grep ashift' shows ashift=12 (4096 byte
However, when I begin to copy a lot of files files into /mypool/mydir
online radio player gets severely affected. Sound get interrupted all
the time. Itrettuptions stop after 1-2 secs after I stop copying.
This didn't happen with sector size 512 bytes.
What is wrong?
