Joerg Moellenkamp Compiles a List

Anyone with questions about ZFS Dedup Internals should have a look at the lengthy cheat sheet Joerg Moellenkamp has compiled which he shares with readers that deals with " ... some implications of the implementation," rather than the basic deduplication function itself. The cheat sheet covers such aspects of dedup as checksums; deduplication tables (DDTs); ZFS Attribute Processors (ZAPs); memory allocation; the preferred use of SSDs as opposed to disk; asynchronous writes; pools, and so forth. Have a look; print it out.
