A plugin system is provided for extending the built-in features by installing additional software. These base applications and drivers have been updated or added: This brings in many new features and drivers https: Improvements have been made to the em 4 https: Additionally, the netmap 4 https: To use this version, specify iperf3 instead of iperf.
Type zfs-stats to see command usage. The BMC bug which required the watchdog to be disabled is resolved with the These major features are new in this version: Scrub pause state and progress are periodically synced to disk.
If the system is restarted or the pool is exported during a paused scrub, the scrub remains paused until it is resumed. When resumed, the scrub picks up from the place where it was last checkpointed to disk. Paused scrubs can be resumed with zpool scrub. Scrubs can be paused manually with zpool scrub -p. This can be used to provide a secure connection to a cloud service providers. These screens have changed: This can be used to remove a device from the boot pool.
This allows up to six addi- tional DNS search domains with the caveat that adding more domains may negatively impact DNS lookup time. It defaults to the Error log level. If a screen on the system is not the same as shown in this guide, make sure that all updates have been applied. The limits shown here are for names using plain-text characters that each occupy one byte of space.
Some UTF-8 characters take more than a single byte of space, and using those characters reduces these limits proportionally. System overhead can also reduce the length of these limits by one or more bytes. Longer paths can prevent a device from being mounted.
Device Filesystem Paths 63 bytes devfs 8 https: Longer paths can prevent a device from being created. Supported processors are listed in section 2. This section provides some starter guidelines. General guidelines for RAM: If the system will gide running many jails, or a few resource-intensive gyide, adding 1 to 4 additional gigabytes of RAM can be helpful. This memory is shared by the host and will be used for ZFS when not being used by jails.
Memory used by virtual machines is not available to the host while the VM is running, and is not included in the amounts described above. This Case Study http: The bottom line is that these minimums are based on feedback from many users.
Installation to a hard drive is discouraged as that drive is then not available for data storage. After installation, remove the installer USB stick. That does not provide much room. The recommended minimum is 16 GB. This provides room for the operating system and several boot hser created by updates. More space provides room for more boot environments and 32 GB or more is preferred. Treenas one disadvantage is that they require a disk connection which might be needed for storage disks.
While it might appear that the unused use is wasted, that space is instead used internally by the SSD for wear leveling. This makes the SSD last longer and provides greater reliability.
Consider deleting older boot environments after making sure they are no longer needed. This will create a mirrored boot device. Suggestions for testing guie before adding them to a RAID array can be found in this forum post https: However, on a drive that is below the minimum recommended size, a fair amount uset storage space is lost to swap: However, the capacity available on each disk is limited to the same capacity as the smallest disk in the group.
In general, use disks that are the same size for the best space usage and performance. Realtek cards often perform poorly under CPU load as interfaces with these chipsets do not provide their own processors.
At a minimum, a GigE interface is recommended. When network performance is a requirement and there is some money to spend, use 10 GigE interfaces and a managed switch. Managed switches with support for LACP and jumbo frames are preferred, as both can be used to increase net- work throughput.
Refer to the 10 Gig Networking Primer https: At present, these are not supported: To determine if WOL is supported on a particular in- terface, use the fgeenas name with the following command. In this example, the capabilities line indicates that WOL is supported for the re0 interface: And storing data is, after all, the whole point of a NAS system.
The download page contains an. The command to verify the checksum varies freenxs operating system: Examples for several common operating systems are shown below. One USB stick freejas the installer. Make absolutely sure of the device name to write to and do not mistype the device name when using dd!

If you are uncomfortable using this command, write the. Note that USB device numbers are dynamic, and the target device might be da1 or da2 or another name depending on which devices are attached. The larger 64K block size shown gude helps speed tuide writes to the USB drive.
Follow these in- structions https: Unmount any mounted partitions on the USB thumb drive. Check that the USB thumb drive has only one partition, or partition table errors will be shown on boot.
Determine the device name of the inserted USB thumb drive. Locate the target USB stick and record the path. This will prompt for your password. The dd command can take some minutes to complete. Wait until the prompt returns and a message is displayed with information about how long it took to write the image to the USB drive. If the installer stalls during bootup, double-check the SHA hash of the.
The installer will start automatically after a few seconds, or an option can freenaas chosen by moving the highlight bar to it with the up and down arrow keys and pressing Enter. After booting, the installer menu is displayed as shown in Figure 2.
The next freens, shown in Figure 2. This includes any inserted USB thumb drives, which have names beginning with da. In this example, the user is performing a test installation using VirtualBox and has created a 16 GB virtual disk to hold the operating system. Press the spacebar to select it. To mirror the boot device, move to the second device and freenaw spacebar to select it also.
After making these selections, press Enter. The warning shown in Figure 2.
Press Enter to continue on to the screen shown in Figure 2. A freenae of 8 GB of space on the boot device is required. However, 32 GB is recommended to provide room for future additions and boot environments. When using mirrored boot devices, it is best to use devices of the same size.
When gide existing installation is present, the menu shown in Figure 2. To overwrite an existing installation, use the arrows to move to Fresh Install and press Enter twice to continue to the screen shown in Figure 2.
