I’ve got a ZFS datapool (set up in RAID 10) over 6 spinning rust disks (WD Red/Red+ - all CMR), and a system pool over 2 mirrored SSD’s, currently running on an Asrockrack C236M WS board, using the onboard C236 SATA chipset to drive the disks. All 8 ports are used. There’s no more space in the case, so I won’t be expanding the pool that way
I recently acquired a Dell PERC H310 flashed in IT mode, and I was wondering if I could gain anything with using this to drive the datapool vs the onboard controller?
I’m not using anything passthrough, so I don’t need it for that.
Thanks in advance for anyone who might know
