Yes I know, it's the 24th December. So what ? It's a perfect day to geek.
A friend give me a (root) access to a small box running the last Solaris Express, which include ZFS. Probably the more interesting feature in Solaris after zones.
Here what I done :
# zpool create data c0d0s7 # zfs create data/pkgsrc # zfs create data/pkg # zfs set mountpoint=/usr/pkgsrc data/pkgsrc # zfs set quota=1G data/pkgsrc # zfs set mountpoint=/usr/pkg data/pkg # zfs set quota=512M data/pkg
One I type these command, I automatically have :
data/pkgsrc 1.0G 211M 813M 21% /usr/pkgsrc data/pkg 512M 5.7M 506M 2% /usr/pkg
It's.. wonderful, isn't it ?
After a short use, I really like ZFS, all tasks are simple but efficient.
For the first time, I tried to use pkgsrc with Sun Studio C Compiler (instead GCC). You can check my notes here.
