zfs is a resource hog.  i386 is not able to handle the demand as well
as amd64.

I have never, ever, heard of anyone who has a deep understanding of
zfs on FreeBSD recommend anything other than amd64.  (Note: I am not
such a person, so I am simply reporting my understanding.)

FWIW, I tried it once.


After spending a few days inspecting all the bullet holes in my feet,
I moved it off that i386 machine and all the bullet holes healed up.

tl;dr: zfs/i386 Not Recommended.  But YMMV.
