If you really do benchmarks and not failure verification, you should =20
take care about the recordsize attribute in the corresponding ZFS, =20
else you may get suboptimal performance (this is a suggestion of SUN =20
for the use of ZFS with DBs, personally I don't have access to a =20
machine where the DB is used enough that we could notice a performance =20
