There are general well-known rules about behaviour of various RAID levels, which should also hold for ZFS. > What would be the preferred layout from an performance POV? What kind of performance? read / write, sequential, scattered? One or more heavy users (applications)? All users behave the same or some are sequential and some are scattered? As a rule of thumb, if you don't know the parameters of disk access, with this many drives you won't make a big mistake if you put them all in a single raidz (you should consider purchasing one more drive and using it as either spare drive or make a raidz2 out of all drives together).
