I'm trying to spec out a new system that looks like it might be very
sensitive to sync vs async writes. However, after some research and
investigation I've come to realize that I don't think I understand
a/sync as well as I thought I did and might be confused about some of
Can someone point me to a good "newbie's guide" that explains sync vs
async from the ground up? one that makes no assumptions about prior
knowledge of filesystems and IO. And likewise, another guide
specifically for how they relate to zfs pool/vdev configuration?
Thanks in advance.
