A note on those create parameters:

Param Meaning
ashift=12 Necessary for 4K Drives, otherwise you get shit performance
compression=on enables basic compression to save storage space (default=lz4)
casesensitivity=sensitive allows folders with names like "Folder", "folder" and "foLdEr" t
atime=off disables the creation of events in zfs when files are accessed. reduces disk access and event creation leading to a cleaner pool.
normalization=formD normalizes filenames based on UTF-8.
-m /mnt/data equivalent of zfs set mountpoint=/mnt/data but invoked on creation. Default mountpoint is just /<poolname>

Note: always use /dev/disk/by-id for pool creation and zpool import -d /dev/disk/by-id <poolname> for imports


zpool set feature@encryption=enabled <pool>
