I am going to create a 2-bay mirror using ZFS on Linux. My motherboard’s SATA controller has hotplug support which might be benefitial in case I have to replace a drive in future. However, does enabling hotplug support introduce any performance disadvantage? Do I need to enable hotplug support at all when I take drives offline via command line?
The board is an ASUS Maximus VIII Gene (Z170 chipset).
Thanks in advance!
