Poolsman preview 4 released

Tuesday, March 7, 2023

We are pleased to announce the 4th Poolsman preview release with significantly improved Pool Creation Wizard:

  1. Now you can add any number of disk groups (VDEVs, virtual devices) during pool creation. All types of disk groups (except very specific brand-new draid) are supported, including mirror, raidz, spare, log, dedup, special and cache.
  2. Ability to set specific pool options during pool creation with the possibility of furter editing. They include Sector Size, AutoTrim, AutoReplace and AutoExpand options (AutoReplace is available in read-only mode for now due to high risk of data loss in case of incorrect usage).
  3. Improved Pool Review page in Pool Creation Wizard, which includes high-level information about the new pool with the ability to preview the Shell Command, that will be executed.
  4. Added support for viewing topology of existing DRAID pools in read-only mode.
  5. New Pool Maintenace page, that currently includes pool export and destroy options (scrub, trim, upgrade pool options are on the road).
  6. Better S.M.A.R.T. support (based on users experience).
  7. Various small improvements and bug fixes (support for pools, that were configured manually with using of vdev_id.conf file, have listsnapshots option enabled, etc.)
