============================ ZFS KERNEL BUILD ============================
1) Build the SPL (Solaris Porting Layer) module which is designed to
provide many Solaris APIs in the Linux kernel which are needed
by ZFS. To build the SPL:
tar -xzf spl-x.y.z.tgz
cd spl-x.y.z
./configure --with-linux=<kernel src>
make check <as root>
2) Build ZFS, this port is based on build specified by the ZFS.RELEASE
file. You will need to have both the kernel and SPL source available.
To build ZFS for use as a Linux kernel module.
tar -xzf zfs-x.y.z.tgz
cd zfs-x.y.z
./configure --with-linux=<kernel src> \
--with-spl=<spl src>
make check <as root>
============================ ZPIOS TEST SUITE ============================
3) Provided is an in-kernel test application called zpios which can be
used to simulate a parallel IO load. It may be used as a stress
or performance test for your configuration. To simplify testing
scripts provided in the scripts/ directory which provide a few
pre-built zpool configurations and zpios test cases. By default
'make check' as root will run a simple test against several small
loopback devices created in /tmp/.
cd scripts
./ # Load the ZFS/SPL modules
./ -c -t tiny -v # Tiny zpios loopback test
./ -u # Unload the ZFS/SPL modules
