Hi Feroccimx,

I would say that if you have a system with 2Tb of memory and have experienced performance issues, it is much more likely to be an application or configuration issue. A 3Tb swap area is inordinately large and as ZFS will use large portions of local memory for paging and swapping, moving significant ammounts of that to disk will impact performance of the SAN in a significant way.

I think that there is a need for some serious analysis work.
