OpenSolaris: ZFS techtalk
By Wei-Peng Zhong on 十二月 20, 2008
I invited a fellow student of STU OSUM to give a ZFS techtalk for us. The following is the techtalk description.
Speaker: Liebin Yan
Date: Dec.19, 2008
Location: Software Engineering Lab. Shantou University
This Techtalk was to show the design of ZFS and the basic commands to manage ZPool and ZFS. ZFS is brand-new to me. I have tried my best to learn how to administrate ZFS by reading zfsadmin.pdf from Opensolaris.org during the past two months. To explain the design of ZFS, I used pools-and-subpools idea in this techtalk, so that attendees could accept easily. In my plan, I would use an opensolaris installed in VirtualBox to demonstrate those instances, but I was sorry to see that something unexpected happened, some demonstrations met troubles due to my offhand preparation because I had not tested them beforehand. As a matter of fact, I'm not familiar with solaris and I need training. Luckly, the attendees are interested in the storage pool, which satisfies me.
