[Gluster-users] ZFS setup question

Hello,
I am in the process of setting up my Gluster shares and I am looking at 
the following two setup options and I am wondering if anyone can speak 
to the pros/cons of either:

1) Create one large zfs filesystem for gluster.

eg:

zfs create pool1/glusterfs

and then create several folders with 'mkdir' inside '/pool1/glusterfs' 
(music,videos,documents).

2) Create 1 zfs filesystem per share.

eg:

zfs create pool1/glusterfs
zfs create pool1/glusterfs/music
zfs create pool1/glusterfs/videos
zfs create pool1/glusterfs/documents


I would then share /pool1/glusterfs out with gluster (I do not want to 
have to have an overly complicated .vol file with each share having it's 
own gluster volume).


Any thoughts would be great.

Thanks,

Shain
