OSDevCon 2009 Paper: Implementing a simple ZFS Auto-Scrub Service with SMF, RBAC, IPS and Visual Panels Integration - Lessons learned

A while ago, I wrote a little tool that helps you keep your ZFS pools clean by automatically running regular scrubs, similar to what the OpenSolaris auto-snapshot service does.

The lessons I learned during development of this service went into an OSDevCon 2009 paper that was presented in September 2009 in Dresden. It is a nice summary of things to keep in mind when developing SMF services of your own and it includes a tutorial on writing a GUI based on the OpenSolaris Visual Panels project.

Check out the Whitepaper here, the slides here, the SMF service here and if you want to take a peek at the Service's Visual Panels Java code, you'll find it here.
