If by "root disk", you mean the one that isn't ZFS, that wouldn't touch anything here; apart from a md-backed UFS /tmp and some NFS mounts, everything on my system is ZFS. I believe vfs.bufspace is what shows up as "Buf" on top? I don't recall it looking particularly interesting when things were madly swapping. I'll uncork arc_max again for a bit and see if anything odd shows up in it, but it's only a dozen megs or so now. -- Matthew Fuller (MF4839) | fulle...@over-yonder.net Systems/Network Administrator | http://www.over-yonder.net/~fullermd/ On the Internet, nobody can hear you scream. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
