Self Healing with ZFS

This demo shows how ZFS's self healing features can repair silent data corruption which occurs in mirrored volumes. This is in contrast to traditional volume managers which won't notice that the corruption ever occurred. In this demo, we splat random data over one side of a mirror. Please use extreme caution if you decide to replicate this experiment. And don't try it with a traditional volume manager.
