    Feature Request: ZFS ZVol Storage Integration

    ziuchkovski Lurker

      I would like to request ZFS ZVol integration for virtual storage.  ZFS ZVols would provide high performance, low-level disk access for guest VMs, as well as native snapshot and clone capabilities.

       

       

       

      Using VMDKs on a ZFS dataset is workable.  However, this tends to perform poorly, especially when using snapshots.  My understanding is that the VMFS backing uses 1MB block sizes, which doesn't mix well with ZFS.
