stat->st_blocks give wrong filesize information on FreeBSD with ZFS filesystem. Nginx cache max_size exceed and filesystem is full sometime later. I searched the problem and see the changes in 3900 and i changed this;

#define ngx_file_fs_size(sb) ((sb)->st_blocks * 512)
#define ngx_file_fs_size(sb) (sb)->st_size

The problem solved with this change but I know this change for filesize precise and I/O operations but ZFS st_blocks very different. I googled and read some discussions about these. May be same problem occur on Solaris with ZFS filesystem.

Ok, it look like ZFS reports incorrect st_blocks unless file settles on disk, and this may take a while (i.e. just after creation of file st_blocks is incorrect). We probably want to disable st_blocks use if st_blocks * 512 < st_size, it should fix ZFS problems while still preserving accuracy for other filesystems.

(And, just to confirm, your workaround is safe, though it makes calculations for other filesystems less precise.)
