Which kernel module should be loaded? Is there a definitive and up-to-date documentation for NetworkMgr anywhere? I'm trying to set it up on FreeBSD 11-STABLE, but I don't see any man pages.

I didn't run any scientific performance tests on ZFS, just my casual observations from running FreeBSD 10.x as a workstation. If I do some intensive tasks like processing video or raw photos, copying large sets of files around, etc - ZFS slows down with time.

For me ZFS is too much resource hungry and slow for a simple desktop system. Its killer features are more suited for servers, I think.
In my experience ZFS is fast right after reboot. But then the longer I work in the system the slower it gets. I suspect ZFS slows down when internal caches are filled up. I don't see this effect with UFS.
I use Mate on FreeBSD 10-STABLE. Fonts on qbittorent were too tiny for my eyes. I fixed that by installing qt4-qtconfig, running it and selecting font size. You can also select a nice QT theme.
