ZIL: disable or not disable, that is the question…
After a lot of tests on Solaris ZFS/NFS performance, i came into this (time tar -xpvzf pam-1.2-MRSL.tar.gz):
real 0m7.867s user 0m0.050s sys 0m0.060s
The pam-1.2-MRSL package is 515K in size, with just 89 files on it!
Running against a Linux NFS server (XFS filesystem):
real 0m0.637s user 0m0.050s sys 0m0.080s
After the reading of this, i was “obligated” to try it… and:
real 0m0.530s user 0m0.070s sys 0m0.070s
