I enabled it a few weeks ago before I left UMBC, and it certainly
seemed to help write performance on the ZFS pool -- we started seeing
the larger batched writes on those devices, instead of a constant
stream of itty bity IOs caused by the constant fsync'ing.
If you feel that your filesystem/buffercache will do a good job at
writing things out to disk, and you've got battery-backed cache on
your storage, you should be relatively well off.
