Unable to determine IP address from host name org-mode.org. Is that correct?

comment Compared to other filesystems why is ZFS so slow, with incoming data?
@Gilles: To be more specific I have 10+ drives running JFS (previously on Gentoo). The initial conversion of JFS to ZFS on Gentoo + Fuse gave me about 1/3 of the speed. These are unmirrored (until after conversion), non-raid drives. I'm talking about 5-7 megabytes per second (JFS into new ZFS) vs a normal drive to drive (JFS to JFS copy) of 25-29 megabytes per second. This is regardless of Fuse on Gentoo or FreeBSD access. The data insertion seems to be about 1/3 of the speed. Other (read) access is much more respectable.
