I am not sure if you get correct results with /dev/zero and
enabled compression. A file that only contains null bytes won't
grow very fast in compressed form.
You might want to create storage/test and disable compression
for this, then set a limit of 1M or larger (if you like) and try
I currently have a pool defined without general compression and
# zfs create tank/test
# zfs set quota=1m tank/test
# cp /usr/ports/distfiles/samba-3.0.32.tar.gz /tank/test/
cp: /tank/test/samba-3.0.32.tar.gz: Disc quota exceeded
# zfs destroy tank/test
and compressration is a very steady 1.00x ;-)
