ZFS on Linux / Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6

Currently trying ZFS on my Linux machines. The experience is alright so far. Only problem is that ZFS on Linux is implemented as a kernel module, so I got to recompile ZFS each time the kernel is upgraded.

This machine is a syslog server. I’m particularly curious about the de-duplication. This is a block level duplication, and there are a large amount of common stuff in syslog message so I guess the de-dup would be useful. I’m still trying basic stuff here though. Not too confident to use fanciful stuff on experimental software.
