btw, I have weird cpu load average spikes (on hw and virt machines), with 30..60 minutes delay (observed in top and zabbix). Load jumps but cpu utilization stay low (total<5%). It doesn't correlate with systemd timers. In mean time machine with same configuration but on ext4 has no such spikes. I not sure its zfs fault. Does anyone have such problem? Screenshot of cpu load and usage for systems that were idle most of the time

Hello everyone. Packages have not been updated in a while because I am working to switch them over to use "extramodules" so that they only need to be updated once for a major version. See

you can compile packages yourself, for example using docker image of archlinux
(created with
**inside** docker container create script

echo '#!/bin/bash
cd "/tmp/"
curl -LO "$Package.tar.gz"
tar -xvf "$Package.tar.gz"
cd "./$Package"
chown -R nobody:nobody ./
sudo -u nobody makepkg -s
pacman -U --noconfirm "$Package"*".pkg.tar.xz"
cp "$Package"*".pkg.tar.xz" "/var/cache/pacman/pkg/"
cd "../"
rm -rf "./$Package"
cd "$dir"' > /bin/install_aur
chmod +x /bin/install_aur

install packages: base-devel linux-lts-headers kmod linux-lts

then you can try compile zfs-lts

echo "spl-utils-linux-lts spl-linux-lts zfs-utils-linux-lts zfs-linux-lts" | xargs -n1 install_aur

if it work - you then can copy packages to host system

docker cp container_name:/var/cache/pacman/pkg /tmp/zfs

dirty but it work.. sometimes

I find that the archzfs repo usually lags behind quite a bit for the lts kernel, right now it's still pointing to the 4.4.46 kernel

./configure does not find spl.

Adding --with-spl=/usr/src/spl- to ./configure fixed it for me.

Strange problem: the AUR packages have been updated, but not the archzfs repository.

Thanks for the great work.

This package is out-of-date for 3 days now. Is there a problem? Is it possible to help out somehow?

What's the problem with using the current kernel version (say, as provided by uname) in the PKGBUILD? I'm using custom kernel (repo-ck/linux-ck-ivybridge) and I think it's waste of time to generate a build for every custom kernel out there.

The packages have been updated for kernel 4.4.20-1

However, the initscripts have been refactored for this release. I have partly finished automated testing for booting archzfs at

If anyone encounters any problems, please make an issue at

Also, we have had a number of contributors that made pull requests to make this happen. Please send them your thanks! See

I'm guessing this package and all the other -lts zfs pkgs need to be updated to use the newest version of the lts kernel. It wants 4.4.16, but the latest seems to be 4.4.19-1.
