"generally urged" where? I see a brief mention in the admin guide that
"performance will be better" will smaller sets.
In general, where do i find ZFS tuning & configuration suggestions
like this? I follow the zfs-discuss list but don't read everything
religiously, and don't see any faqs.
This is offtopic here but i'm about to bring up a new netflow data
