    It’s nice that HAMMER2 is getting ready.

    1. 1

      What sorts of features does HAMMER2 offer?

      1. 3

        It’s supposed to be ZFS-like, but without its big overhead. For now it’s experimental and not yet feature-complete. Still, it seems stable enough to include support for it in the installer for wider test coverage.

        1. 3

          At least for HAMMER (1?), I’ve seen very large RAM requirements listed, and DragonFly didn’t work on my bhyve VM until I gave it a ton of memory. Meanwhile, ZFS works fine on 512MB machines. The overhead is kind of a myth, honestly.
