on the strength of observations made by somebody else here recently, i tried
moving my mail store from ZFS to UFS.
scan results for +inbox, ~4000 messages.
UFS (3Ware mirror):
0.114u 0.076s 0:00.21 85.7% 138+1461k 1+0io 0pf+0w
0.440u 1.273s 0:33.47 5.1% 143+1507k 0+0io 0pf+0w
my sleepycat version is no faster than the UFS numbers above. apparently i
have been the victim of "zfs fragmentation".
00.21 versus 33.47? I'd really investigate hot/cold cache effects
there. If you "just" moved it to UFS, a copy is probably still in
cache. Any way to flush the in-memory file cache on your box and
