It should be fast in all cases when the blocks are read or written. When you empty the thrash, only the directory entries are read/written so the difference should be negligible in that case.

I've noticed that when emptying the trash it could be very slow with default, would this be improved? — I don't think it has anything to do with checksum, but who knows...

About the initial issue of this thread: I've never been able to work it out... :(
com.apple.browse is set to on
com.apple.mimic_hfs is set to on
I couldn't find anything else to try and resolve it.
The .DS_Store files are still not created on any of my pools/datasets — though Spotlight works and the other typical invisible files are created and working ok (.DocumentRevisions-V100, .fseventsd, .Spotlight-V100, .TemporaryItems and .Trashes)
Any idea, anyone?

It's a long shot, but you might want to try toggling the global preference:

Code: Select all
defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores true
reboot
defaults write com.apple.desktopservices DSDontWriteNetworkStores false
reboot

Thanks! Interesting. I was beginning to think that it's a known (except to me :mrgreen: ) lack of ZFS...
I'll try your suggestion.

Unfortunately, your suggestion non only didn't work with pools and datasets but my .DS_Store files are not created anywhere any more now... :shock:
It gave me the occasion to dig a little more the Internet about that issue, just to find that it happens to other people, presumably not using ZFS, and from Yosemite to Mojave.
So I think we can consider it a bug in MacOS, as some other people say, not related to ZFS.

EDIT: while I was writing this post, it started to work again on my HFS volumes! Looking at the Console, it's full of quicklookd and QuickLookSatellite errors... Well, we can at least say that this MacOS thing is not reliable at all. :cry:
