    Hi, why did you install on ufs and not on zfs? One of the main and great features of FreeBSD is that you can install it on native zfs root filesystem.

    I don’t know about him, but I only use UFS because I install on ESXi, which already has the features of ZFS and more, and easier and more solid to administer because it works even if the operating system will not boot. If I were bare metal, then I would use ZFS for its self-healing and robustness, but ZFS is also hard on resources on a heavily loaded server.

      Yes, IT_Architect has correctly spotted the right answer. ZFS is mainly used to deploy filesystems on bare metal machines with multiple attached storage uints or HDDs. In virtual machines ther’s no point in using ZFS, because the underlying hard disk is nothing than a single file created on a already existing storage and filesystem.
