[zfs-discuss] Size discrepancy (beyond expected amount?)

I'm finally getting close to the setup I wanted, after quite a bit of
experimentation and bugging these lists endlessly.

So first, thanks for your tolerance and patience.

My setup consists of 4 disks.  One holds the OS (rpool) and 3 more all
the same model and brand, all 500gb.

I've created a zpool in raidz1 configuration with:

  zpool create  zbk raidz1  c3d0 c4d0 c4d1

No errors showed up and zpool status shows no problems with those
   pool: zbk
  state: ONLINE
  scrub: none requested

        NAME        STATE     READ WRITE CKSUM
        zbk         ONLINE       0     0     0
          raidz1    ONLINE       0     0     0
            c3d0    ONLINE       0     0     0
            c4d0    ONLINE       0     0     0
            c4d1    ONLINE       0     0     0

However, I appear to have lost an awfull lot of space... even above
what I expercted.

  df -h
  zbk                   913G   26K  913G   1% /zbk

It appears something like 1 entire disk is gobbled up by raidz1.

The same disks configured in zpool with no raidz1  shows  1.4tb with df.

I was under the impression raidz1 would take something like 20%.. but
this is more like 33.33%.

So, is this to be expected or is something wrong here?
