FreeBSD For all of you using FreeBSD and ZFS, Kip Macy (kmacy) and Pawel Jakub Dawidek (pjd) merged ZFS Version 13 into FreeBSD 7-STABLE. Here is a breakdown of some of the new features: kmem now goes up to 512GB so arc is now limited by physmem, the arc now experiences backpressure from the vm (which can be too much - but this allows ZFS to work without any tunables on amd64), L2ARC Level 2 cache for ZFS which allows you to use additional disks for cache, and more.

Thanks for getting this stuff up to date. The features for ZFS I'm mostly waiting for involve the ZFSBoot!

I can't wait to get everything ZFS so my disk management gets really easy. Swapping out harddrives just becomes such a breeze.

Thanks for all the effort going into this.

btw, I think it sucks that out of 15 comments on this news, only 2 seemed relevant to the original post.
