Hello Level1Techs Forum,
I’m a newbie when it comes to zfs, and I need some advise. I’d like to migrate my Unraid pool to zfs (on Unraid). I currently have:
4x8Tb Wd (one usb)
2x 12Tb Wd (usb)
and a 2tb samsung drive (to be used as drive to start the unraid pool)
My current plan is to build a raidz1 with the 4tb drives and go on from there.
I have a couple questions regarding that.
can I add a second raidz-1 pool (with the 8tb drives) to the existing one(and later the 12tb drives)?
Will I need an ssd for caching?
I have 64Gb of ecc memory (about 48Usable after dockers and vms) is that enough when I upgrade to 4x4tb, 4x8tb, (4x12tb in the furture) all raidz1?
Can I saturate 10gbits?
As My files are mainly music, movies, should I set to pool to use compression?
How can I share my zpool via SMB?
Is my plan to use raidZ1 any good?
Is there anything else I might have missed?
Thanks in advance for reading this.
