“FreeBSD Mastery: Advanced ZFS” Table of Contents

I’ve gotten a few potential sponsors asking what Allan and I intend to put in the Advanced ZFS book. Here’s a tentative Table of Contents.

We may split, remix, slice, dice, fold, spindle, and mutilate this in the coming weeks.

0: Introduction
1: Boot Environments
2: Delegation and Jails
3: Sharing
4: Replication
5: zvols
6: Advanced Hardware
7: Caches
8: Performance
9: Tuning
10: ZFS Potpourri

I’m also looking for classic art to parody for the cover. Ideally, I’d like something where I could do another wraparound cover, as I had on FreeBSD Mastery: Specialty Filesystems. I’m very open to suggestions, which is a nice way of saying “I have no clue whatsoever.”

  1. In the Boot Environment chapter, will you be including the changes coming up in either 10.3 or 11.0 regarding proper BE selection from the boot loader, even from encrypted disks?

  2. MWL,

    I was thinking of Beastie as Mickey Mouse dressed as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice (from Fantasia) commanding the broomsticks which spill over onto the back cover (representing replication). I don’t have a prototype, sorry – I’m just the ideas man.
