I'm new to FreeNas, setup a box at work with basic ZFS pool of raid 1 2x1TB drives.
Currently have a media center PC with 700 GB used thinking of switching to a freenas system and storing it all on network.
What's the best performance/price for CPU's? I'd obviously want it on 24x7 so power is a concern. Ideas? Initially I was looking at like a 65w I3 but I'm reading some folks using as low as E350's from AMD?
P.S. Anyone had issues using snapshot on ZFS? I make the ZFS snapshot and it says successful but its not listed and console says out of space, even though have 300GB free and trying to snapshot a 10GB dataset.
