zfs-events - Events created by the ZFS filesystem.

ZFS-EVENTS(5) File Formats Manual ZFS-EVENTS(5)

NAME

zfs-events - Events created by the ZFS filesystem.

DESCRIPTION

Description of the different events generated by the ZFS stack.
 
Most of these don't have any description. The events generated by ZFS have never been publicly documented. What is here is intended as a starting point to provide documentation for all possible events.
 
To view all events created since the loading of the ZFS infrastructure (i.e, "the module"), run
zpool events
to get a short list, and
zpool events -v
to get a full detail of the events and what information is available about it.
 
This man page lists the different subclasses that are issued in the case of an event. The full event name would be ereport.fs.zfs.SUBCLASS, but we only list the last part here.
 

EVENTS (SUBCLASS)

checksum
Issued when a checksum error have been detected.
 
 
io
Issued when there is an I/O error in a vdev in the pool.
 
 
data
Issued when there have been data errors in the pool.
 
 
delay
Issued when an I/O was slow to complete as defined by the zio_delay_max module option.
 
 
config.sync
Issued every time a vdev change have been done to the pool.
 
 
zpool
Issued when a pool cannot be imported.
 
 
zpool.destroy
Issued when a pool is destroyed.
 
 
zpool.export
Issued when a pool is exported.
 
 
zpool.import
Issued when a pool is imported.
 
 
zpool.reguid
Issued when a REGUID (new unique identifier for the pool have been regenerated) have been detected.
 
 
vdev.unknown
Issued when the vdev is unknown. Such as trying to clear device errors on a vdev that have failed/been kicked from the system/pool and is no longer available.
 
 
vdev.open_failed
Issued when a vdev could not be opened (because it didn't exist for example).
 
 
vdev.corrupt_data
Issued when corrupt data have been detected on a vdev.
 
 
vdev.no_replicas
Issued when there are no more replicas to sustain the pool. This would lead to the pool being DEGRADED.
 
 
vdev.bad_guid_sum
Issued when a missing device in the pool have been detected.
 
 
vdev.too_small
Issued when the system (kernel) have removed a device, and ZFS notices that the device isn't there any more. This is usually followed by a probe_failure event.
 
 
vdev.bad_label
Issued when the label is OK but invalid.
 
 
vdev.bad_ashift
Issued when the ashift alignment requirement has increased.
 
 
vdev.remove
Issued when a vdev is detached from a mirror (or a spare detached from a vdev where it have been used to replace a failed drive - only works if the original drive have been readded).
 
 
vdev.clear
Issued when clearing device errors in a pool. Such as running zpool clear on a device in the pool.
 
 
vdev.check
Issued when a check to see if a given vdev could be opened is started.
 
 
vdev.spare
Issued when a spare have kicked in to replace a failed device.

Issued when a vdev can be automatically expanded.
 
 
io_failure
Issued when there is an I/O failure in a vdev in the pool.
 
 
probe_failure
Issued when a probe fails on a vdev. This would occur if a vdev have been kicked from the system outside of ZFS (such as the kernel have removed the device).
 
 
log_replay
Issued when the intent log cannot be replayed. The can occur in the case of a missing or damaged log device.
 
 
resilver.start
Issued when a resilver is started.
 
 
resilver.finish
Issued when the running resilver have finished.
 
 
scrub.start
Issued when a scrub is started on a pool.
 
 
scrub.finish
Issued when a pool have finished scrubbing.
 
 
bootfs.vdev.attach
 

PAYLOADS

I/O STAGES

The ZFS I/O pipeline is comprised of various stages which are defined below. The individual stages are used to construct these basic I/O operations: Read, Write, Free, Claim, and Ioctl. These stages may be set on an event to describe the life cycle of a given I/O.

I/O FLAGS

Every I/O in the pipeline contains a set of flags which describe its function and are used to govern its behavior. These flags will be set in an event as an zio_flags payload entry.
