Looking for further documentation on ZFS devd event documentation

Hi all,

I am looking to put together a comprehensive handler for DVS devd events but am having trouble finding documentation of all the ZFS devd events available.  I did notice that devd.conf(5) omits any documentation of the ZFS events.

So far the best documentation appears to be at /etc/devd/zfs.conf:(https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/stable/11/etc/devd/zfs.conf <https://github.com/freebsd/freebsd/blob/dcbabd8ab86b4211980f408edeb42dbffcc1e58e/etc/devd/zfs.conf>)

Unfortunately, this example doesn’t clarify if there are implemented ZFS events that aren’t listed as well as if there are additional variables present for the events shown.

I was wondering if anybody knew of any further documentation short of looking at the source.

If there is further documentation I would be interested in merging it into the man pages.
