  13. 13. Send / Receive 2005: Matt goes to China, gets frustrated with network latency 2007: send -R [for Fishworks] 2015: receive prefetching 2015: resumable send/receive
  14. 14. Scrub / Resilver Initially: restart whole resilver when create snapshot 2008: complete rewrite to fix that https://blogs.oracle.com/ahrens/entry/new_scrub_code (note mention of “bp rewrite” for device removal) 2015: don’t redo last part of resilver when create snapshot 2017? Mostly-in-order resilver
  15. 15. Deduplication 2009: One of the last major ZFS features from Sun 2010: Lots of performance work Single-threaded free! Future? Still ripe for future work
  16. 16. Future 2017+ Performance & Integration
