By default, FreeBSD 9.x uses journaled soft-updates now. This will cut down
the filesystem check time significantly. A filesystem check will require
manual intervention when some kinds of errors are found.=20

ZFS likes to have a lot of memory, and preferably a 64-bit machine. See the
tuning guide: https://wiki.freebsd.org/ZFSTuningGuide
