Hi,

I have this ZFS Nexentastore community edition running on an HP NL 40 microserver which is working fine.
However, the system is up and running for some months now and I’d like to know :

“my setup is default, I have this rsync server and some shares (NFS and CIFS) but what about all other settings (scrubbing etc), any recommandations to change default settings?”

Thanks.
J.

Add SSD for logs and cache, if you require enhanced performance.

If it's stable and works, I would leave "as is".
