comment ZPOOL how to remove volume?
If you can live without deduplication, you could give a try to Btrfs...

dlocate is also my favorite method, very reliable.

comment Why using swap file over a SMB/NFS mounted filesystem is not possible in Linux?
Thank you for the explanation. Put in this way it makes sense, even if I continue to see it as a limitation. I don't know if its worth or not. But if I can't even try it out, I will never know.

Linux gives you the freedom to use every kind of media for every kind of purpose: it's up to you to decide if the game’s not worth the candle. Now tell me why I can use a floppy as swapspace but I can't use a network ramdrive. :P

Probably I forgot to mention it, but this experiment is aimed at using the existing hardware in a more rational way. As far as I can understand about iSCSI, it is simply overly expensive for what I'm trying to do. And I wouldn't be using another machine's hdd because the swapfile is created inside a tmpfs mountpoint, so it's basically inside a ramdrive.

I don't use WiFi, but a short network cable that connects two Gbps Ethernet cards. The OSI pile has several checksum fields layered on top of each other that should be enough to prevent most faults and corruptions. For the moment I'd like just to know if and how this is possible. I will think about stability and security implications later on.

comment ZFS compressed and deduped filesystem on file
Thank you, worked like a charm. At the end I created the filesystem with these options: zpool create -O dedup=sha256 -O checksum=sha256 -O compress=gzip-9 filepool /tmp/zfile because I wanted better compression/deduplication. However mksquashfs seems to be much better for permanent archiving, probably because of LZMA2 compression.
