Hi Andreas,

I'm looking for any data regarding resilvering time for a zfs pool in a case of a drive failure and 
again with full or fragmented pools.

Thanks in Advance,

Could you please clarify the question?  Do you mean what the resilvering time is for a ZFS zpool when a drive fails?  That depends heavily on your zpool configuration (number and performance of drives), and how full/fragmented the pool is.  This is more of a ZFS question, but some numbers I saw recently were about 20-40MB/s resilvering for the *used* data on the HDD.
