It took you a week to move 2.3T of data?  That sounds very wrong.  I have a similar setup here (10 x 4TB in RAIDZ2) and migrated my 9TB+ of data in just a couple days across GigE.


I attribute at least part of the slowness of the first pass to the 4096:512 emulation which the ashift=12 parameter should have fixed on the return pass. There's something -- possibly inadequate caching memory space -- that ran up the load factor on the return pass to over 8 at one point. The pod has only 8GB and the smallest/slowest AMD 6000 series CPU. Another possibility is that the 1:5 SATA port expanders are inefficient.  The main server with a 2TB ZFS array has a proper server motherboard with dual quad-core 2000 series AMD CPUs and 32GB of ECC registered RAM.
