Port over zSTD to ZFS
This is track progress of porting zSTD compression to freenas
#1 Updated by Sean Fagan about 1 year ago
- Status changed from Unscreened to Fix In Progress
Started actively working on this. There are a bunch of dependencies, however -- the zstd changes are all to later versions of zfs than we have in 11. If Alexander were going to do another merge, that would be good to know first :).

An update, which was pointed out that I'd given to Kris but not here:
The code in the branch that I have pushed works, and matches what's in freebsd 12 (mostly, anyway). It can be rolled in any time, but mostly all that will give us is the zstd compression command. Which is nice, but not a huge impact.
The other changes that Alan had put up for review for FreeBSD... I got them back-ported to 11, but they wouldn't build. I then tried the changes on freebsd 12, and they still wouldn't build. I sent him an email about this, but have not heard back; worringly as well, however, is that Matt asked a question about the code on the review page, and has not gotten a response.
So right now, the code we really want doesn't compile, and it's not my fault in back-porting it.

Dependent on a related task to be completed)
I am closing this. While it would be good, we can not get what is not existing so far, and can not do everything ourselves.
