Hi All,

Can anyone recommend a best practices or recommendations guide for running Oracle (10g) on ZFS (Solaris 10)? I'm interested in things like FILESYSTEMIO_OPTIONS and DISK_ASYNC_IO etc. and also in a general overview on how ZFS works and how to monitor it from a DBA perspective. Searched Oracle and Sun websites without much luck so far.

Many thanks!
