OpenZFS on OsX 1.9.1 RC1

Postby lundman » Thu Jun 27, 2019 11:22 pm

We are now testing a Release Candidate for 1.9.1

Mostly bug fixes from 1.9.0, but it contains one large new feature. The ZOL vectorized assembler framework has been
ported across, which will hopefully improve speed of AES, raidz, and, fletcher_4.

If you encounter issues with the new assembler code, it can be disabled by running the commands;

Code: Select all
# sysctl kstat.zfs.darwin.tunable.zfs_vdev_raidz_impl=original
# sysctl kstat.zfs.darwin.tunable.icp_gcm_impl=generic
# sysctl kstat.zfs.darwin.tunable.icp_aes_impl=generic
# sysctl kstat.zfs.darwin.tunable.zfs_fletcher_4_impl=scalar

Some CPU capabilities have not been tested by me (lacking sufficiently new CPU), for example AVX512*.
Even though Apple currently (?) has no AMD64 product available, the assembler version was left intact, it
also needs testing.
