In you last show you briefly mentioned how the data is being written to the disk. From the application to the actual writing to the disk. 

What is the path? When you save a file in an application, probably application doesn’t write to the disk directly. Does it hands data to the kernel which hands data to the driver and then -> ZFS which talks to the hardware (disk) and makes sure that data gets written? Or is any other path how data gets written to the disk?
Is this path different if a starting point is a local application or if data arrives from NIC?
