comment How to set up ZFS with ZIL and L2ARC SSD?
How do I know? uname -a. ZFS is a Solaris filesystem and was ported to BSD later. It is not officially supported on Linux and there are technical and legal issues with ZFS on linux. Switch to Solaris/OpenIndiana or FreeBSD if you want to use ZFS or use bcache on Linux. Also read this and this.

comment Storing thousands of files in one directory
XFS seems to be great for big files but I would not recommend it for many small files. I wrote a benchmark using 300K small files.

@JimThio dirty_expire_centisecs is not the only value you have to tweak. dirty_async_ratio controls how much of your ram will be used for writecache, until disk io starts. Also keep your Filesystem settings like in mind. What mount options are you using?
