I take it you mean 'what would this output look like if all 128GB were
used'?   Because at the moment, you've got quite a lot of your disk
spaces still unused.

The 'Avail' column would show zero or a very small amount of space
available when the pool was full, and the figures for the 'Size' and
'Used' columns would have pretty near equal values.

The 'Size' and 'Capacity' columns are a bit weird in ZFS -- unlike a
system with fixed size filesystems where the meaning of those columns is
clear, with ZFS  'Size' means "The sum of the already used space for
this ZFS plus all of the available space in the entire pool"[*] -- so
'Size' for one ZFS will change as data is added to another ZFS.
Capacity is just the ratio of 'Used' over 'Size', and shows similar effec=
ts.

	Cheers,

	Matthew

[*] Assuming that there haven't been any reservations or size limits
configured for that ZFS, which is generally the case for what the
installer creates.
