Does the block size for Metadata LUN match that for the vol?

Does anyone know if the block size used by the metadata matches the block size used by the volume? I'm wondering for performance tuning for ZFS ZVOLs where you can specify the block size at creation time.

Yes. All stripe groups in an Xsan volume use the same file system block size, including ones used for metadata.

but, you can set journal size and stripe bredth settings for the metadata and journal.
