'Disappearing' data under ZFS on Linux sparks small swift tweak



In FreeNAS if a ZFS pool is allowed to become full, the pool becomes unavailable for read or delete. ZFS writes a small file to the disk at the start of every transaction, and so if can't then the transaction is pooched. I hope the ZFS implementation on Linux has fixed that, and BSD implementations such as FreeNAS can follow suit.
