Got an email 0.7.8 is being worked on and will be released shortly. If it does not come out in the next day, I will revert to 0.7.6. Thanks!

A confirmed regression in 0.7.7 results in data loss during copy operations. So far, the issue has not been reported as reproducible on Arch Linux. The steps to reproduce are simple:

# mkdir SRC
# for i in $(seq 1 10000); do echo $i > SRC/$i ; done
# cp -r SRC DST
cp: cannot create regular file `DST/8442': No space left on device
cp: cannot create regular file `DST/2629': No space left on device

linux has moved to 4.15.5 - when will this package be updated?

justinkb commented on 2018-02-06 04:48

Looks like my issue was caused by a critical bug in 4.15. I'm now on 4.15.1 with some patches and it works fine with the patch below

There's nothing to fear. I've run zfs-git for 3 years and there has never been a data loss event. The only event was a performance problem that was fixed in 4 hours.

I build three sets of out-of-tree kmods, just ZFS, Vbox (which I don't think were even used/inserted) and nvidia-drivers. The only one I can conceivably see taking down those kernel subsystems are the ZFS filesystem drivers. But I'll try to see if any of the other two were responsible later tonight. PS. I don't actually even use arch anymore, but the arch community remains a very valuable resource so I still come here ;) PPS. I'm not brave enough to use the ZFS git master packages... not by a long shot. I have many terabytes of data in my ZFS pool

I haven't had any issues on 4.15 so far. Did you try using the git packages with 4.15? If you get the same problem there, it might be an upstream issue

justinkb commented on 2018-01-31 21:59

Tried zfs on 4.15 with just the patch linked below, definitely not ready for primetime. Huge issues with the filesystem and even block device subsystems totally borking out (luckily didn't lose any data, other than some small files getting corrupted because of unclean shutdowns). Stay on 4.14.x for now
