Periodic scrubs of ZFS filesystems
It was and is always a best practice to do regular scrubs of your ZFS filesystems in order to ensure that all checksums … well … check out to ensure that corrupt blocks are repaired soon by using the redundancies of a mirror or a RAIDZn. However it was always a task for a homegrown cronjob in order to do so. Since Oracle Solaris 11.4 there is a much easier way to do this scheduled scrubs by simply setting a ZFS property.
You can use s (second, default), h (hour), d (day), w (week, 7 days), m (month, 30 days) and y (year, 365 days) to define an interval but internally they are converted to seconds.
However you have to keep in mind that you can’t set
scrubinterval shorter than 60 minutes. Trying to do so will just result in a error message.
But I really don’t think, that someone would do scrubs each hour.
