I realise an exorbitant memory usage of FreeBSD CURRENT ( FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #16 r303470: Fri Jul 29 05:58:42 CEST 2016 ). Swap space gets eaten up while building world/kernel and/or ports very quickly.
I see this phenomenon on different CURRENT systems with different RAM (but all ZFS!). No box is less than 8 GB RAM: one 8GB, another 16, two 32 GB. An older XEON Core2Duo server with postgresql 9.5/postgis acting on some OSM data etas up all of its 32 GB and additional 48GB swap - never seen before with 11-CURRENT. I didn't investigate the problem so far since I realized this memory hunger of 12-CURRENT just today on several boxes compiling world, eating up all the memory, staring swapping and never relax even after hours from the swapped memory. Is this a known phenomenon or am I seeing something mystique? Regards, Oliver
