Are you shutting down cleanly?
I noticed my VPS takes a bit when I've done a hard reboot, but not when
I let it go through all the nice sync, even though there aren't any
I imagine something high-up in the kernel is asking the ZFS for the
first block of a file, and only at that point does all the paperwork
processing for consistency check come into play, so there are no
messages, just a pause.
