ZFS Setup with four drives, with different mount points?



  • Hi all,

    I had already sent this in the installation section, but I'm moving to here to see if this is a better spot to ask my question.

    I was wondering if there was any possible way when installing pfSense if you could install pfSense with four hard drives in total. My plan was to split the work between two SSDs in a Raid-Z Mirror, that way they're redundant.

    Ideally, the layout would look something like:

    ZFS:

    • OS
      • Mirror
      • 2 SSD Drives
    • Write-heavy areas
      • Stripe
      • 2 SAS Drives

    I could also be doing things completely backwards and if you have any other suggestions. I'd love to hear. Ideally any scenario that's possible would use all four drives.

    Thanks all!
