Yesterday, and I'm seeing really strange slowness, ARC use, and SWAP use
I see these symptoms on stable/11. One of my servers has 32 GiB of
RAM. After a reboot all is well. ARC starts to fill up, and I still
have more than half of the memory available for user processes.
After running the periodic jobs at night, the amount of wired memory
goes sky high. /etc/periodic/weekly/310.locate is a particular nasty
I would like to find out if this is the same person I have
reporting this problem from another source, or if this is
a confirmation of a bug I was helping someone else with.
Have you been in contact with Michael Dexter about this
issue, or any other forum/mailing list/etc?
Just IRC/Slack, with no response.
If not then we have at least 2 reports of this unbound
wired memory growth, if so hopefully someone here can
take you further in the debug than we have been able
What can I provide? The system is still in this state as the full backup is
One place to look is to see if this is the recently fixed:
vmstat -z | egrep 'ITEM|g_bio|UMA'
would be a good first look
borg.lerctr.org /home/ler $ vmstat -z | egrep 'ITEM|g_bio|UMA'

Limiting the ARC to, say, 16 GiB, has no effect of the high amount of
wired memory. After a few more days, the kernel consumes virtually all
memory, forcing processes in and out of the swap device.
Our experience as well.

I noticed this behavior as well and changed vfs.zfs.arc_max for a smaller size.
For me it started when I upgraded to 1200058, in this box I'm only using
poudriere for building tests.
I've noticed that as well.
I have 16G of RAM and two disks, the first one is UFS with the system
installation and the second one is ZFS which I use to store media and
data files and for poudreire.
I don't recall the exact date, but it started fairly recently. System would
swap like crazy to a point when I cannot even ssh to it, and can hardly
login through tty: it might take 10-15 minutes to see a command typed in
I've updated loader.conf to have the following:
It fixed the problem, but introduced a new one. When I'm building stuff
with poudriere with ccache enabled, it takes hours to build even small
projects like curl or gnutls.
For example, current build:
[10i386-default] [2018-03-07_07h44m45s] [parallel_build:] Queued: 3 Built: 1
0 Skipped: 0 Ignored: 0 Tobuild: 2 Time: 06:48:35 : security/gnutls
| gnutls-3.5.18 build (06:47:51)
Almost 7 hours already and still going!
gstat output looks like this:

ada0 here is UFS driver, and ada1 is ZFS.

This is from a APU, no ZFS, UFS on a small mSATA device, the APU (PCenigine)
works as a
firewall, router, PBX):
last pid: 9665; load averages: 0.13, 0.13, 0.11
up 3+06:53:55 00:26:26 19 processes: 1 running, 18 sleeping CPU: 0.3% user,
nice, 0.2% system, 0.0% interrupt, 99.5% idle Mem: 27M Active, 6200K Inact,
Laundry, 185M Wired, 128K Buf, 675M Free Swap: 7808M Total, 2856K Used, 7805M
The APU is running CURRENT ( FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #42 r330608: Wed Mar 7
2018 amd64). Usually, the APU never(!) uses swap, now it is starting to swap
for a couple of days and I have to reboot it failty often.
Another box, 16 GB RAM, ZFS, poudriere, the packaging box, is right now
after hours of building packages, I tried to copy the repository from one
the same ZFS volume to another - usually this task takes a couple of minutes
for ~ 2200
ports. Now, I has taken 2 1/2 hours and the box got stuck, Ctrl-T on the
load: 0.00 cmd: make 91199 [pfault] 7239.56r 0.03u 0.04s 0% 740k
No response from the box anymore.
The problem of swapping like hell and performing slow isn't an issue of the
past days, it
is present at least since 1 1/2 weeks for now, even more. Since I build ports
often, time taken on that specific box has increased from 2 to 3 days for all
ports. The system has 16 GB of RAM, IvyBridge 4-core XEON at 3,4 GHz, if this
matters. The box is consuming swap really fast.
Today is the first time the machine got inresponsible (no ssh, no console login
Need to coldstart. OS is CURRENT as well.
This could be my fault from recent NUMA and concurrency related work. I
did touch some of the arc back-pressure mechanisms. First, I would like
to identify whether the wired memory is in the buffer cache. Can those of
you that have a repro look at sysctl vfs.bufspace and tell me if that
accounts for the bulk of your wired memory usage? I'm wondering if a job
ran that pulled in all of the bufs from your root disk and filled up the
buffer cache which doesn't have a back-pressure mechanism. Then arc
didn't respond appropriately to lower its usage.
Also, if you could try going back to r328953 or r326346 and let me know if
the problem exists in either. That would be very helpful. If anyone is
willing to debug this with me contact me directly and I will send some
test patches or debugging info after you have done the above steps.
Thank you for the reports.
