task ultimately updates the uberblock between consistent ZFS states.
Today these tasks are expected to run on a 5-second schedule with some
leeway. Internally, ZFS builds up the (more...)
From time to time every sysadmin realizes that something that is consuming a bunch of storage is sitting in the wrong place. This could be because of a surprise conversion of proof of concept into proof of production or something more positive like ripping out old crusty storage for a nice new Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance. When you use kernel zones with Solaris 11.3, storage migration gets a lot easier.
