Webdock Backup Storage Backend Finland Degraded snapshotting performance

We are currently investigating degraded zfs snapshotting performance. Snapshots may take longer than the theoretical best possible speed allows for, and it seems the bigger the snapshot size the more delay is experienced. We are corresponding with the zfs developers and at the moment the issue seems to stem from the default zfs packages on Ubuntu. This is a long-term issue and we do not have a firm idea on when this will be resolved.
