Better ZFS statistics reporting would be nice
|Reported by:||jgreco||Owned by:||gcooper|
In trying to determine how to improve the performance of one of our FreeNAS servers here, I was trying to understand where it was most hurting.
The lack of perl makes it hard to run tools such as arc_summary.pl. Could similar tools be made part of FreeNAS in python? The current tools for reporting on a FreeNAS system are nice, probably better than a lot of things, but they're rather trite if you're trying to reconcile performance information with ZFS tuning tips to determine whether to invest in SSD's, etc.
As a longtime sysadmin, I'm used to having to invest the time and effort to dredge through all this stuff to get the answers I need, but it seems to me the point of FreeNAS is that average users shouldn't have to do all that.
