This ZFS thingy

Apparently a RAIDZ2 with 9 disks is computationally expensive: my system got as low as 34% CPU Idle when doing one disk rebuild (and one other disk offline). The CPU isn’t exactly fast (Athlon 64 X2 4600+) but I didn’t expect the usage to be this high. I’ll see how it goes after rebuild finished. Good thing I cancelled my plan of using an Atom for my other file server.
