Sun Solaris, OpenSolaris One of the advantages of ZFS is that it doesn't need a fsck. Replication, self-healing and scrubbing are a much better alternative. After a few years of ZFS life, can we say it was the correct decision? The reports in the mailing list are a good indicator of what happens in the real world, and it appears that once again, reality beats theory. The author of the article analyzes the implications of not having a fsck tool and tries to explain why he thinks Sun will add one at some point.

And no it isn't an fsck

You guys are hanging too much on the word fsck, you know? Try to read the whole post and not cling on to a single word you might not like that much. I was only talking about a way of getting the ZFS volume and/or pool into a sane state, not necessarily a tool called 'fsck' or similar.
