I have a freebsd 11.1 server setup using root on zfs using a pair of
matching usb keys.

I have a pair of matching 1TB drives for data, and a pair of 6TB drives for

I'm trying to minimize the number of disk writes to the usb keys so I'm
working on a plan to remount some of the zroot mounts onto the spinning

I've already moved /tmp and /usr/home

I'd like some suggestions of what to do next.

Here's my current output of "zfs list | grep zroot":

zroot                                            1.88G  10.2G    88K  /zroot

zroot/var/mail                                     88K  10.2G    88K
zroot/var/tmp                                     108K  10.2G   108K

I have my eye on /var/log and /var/tmp and adding a mount for /usr/local/

Thanks for your time guys.
